Roly-oly on now, river
Roly-oly on your way
Roly-oly on now river
Wash my cares away

River so wide and so deep
Wake the sandman from his sleep
River remind him
He has a promise to keep

Roll on, mighty river
Running wild and free
Get along now, river
Bring a dream to me

Hey now, river
Go down, River
Don't slow down, river
Bring a dream for me

Roly-oly on now, river
Roly-oly on your way
Roly-oly on now river
Take my troubles away

Robin Hood river, roll on
Go steal a dream from the dawn
River, you'll find me
Where all the dreamers have gone

Roll on, mighty river
Running wild and free
Get along now, river
And bring a dream to me

Hey now, river
Go down, River
Don't slow down, river
Bring that dream for me
