Hey, Hey Lazarus
Working your backbone, swinging your shovel
Hey, Hey Lazarus
Gold in your river, there forever

One of these days I'm gonna bring the hammer down (Cool water)
I'm working hard, but my heart is wearing out (Cool water)

Hey, Hey Lazarus
Working your backbone, swinging that axe home
Hey, Hey Lazarus
Gold in your river, there forever

The captain's bell, it swings from side to side (Cool water)
High on this hill, I'm working all the time (Cool water)

My hammer comes down hard on everyone (Cool water)
I bring it down until my work is down (Cool water)

Hey, hey Lazarus
Water won't do to {deep} walls of slate
Paleolithic hunters sang this song (Cool water)
To give them strength to work the whole day long (Cool water)
I am the tramp slummed in your doorway
I didn't come to set you free

One of these days when all my work is done (Cool water)
I'm gonna rest in the lap of Abraham (Cool water)
You will not see my face come morning
I didn't come to set you free
