(Don磘 trouble the water)
I won磘 (give it up)
(Why don磘 you, why don磘 you, let it be?)
Um hum hum
(Still water run deep... yes it do)
I know that
(Whoa-o-o-yeah)
Yeah if you only believe

(Instrumental)

(Don磘 trouble the water)
Said I wouldn磘 (give it up)
(Why don磘 you, why don磘 you, let it be?)
Umm (still water run deep)
Yes it do
(Yes it do whoa-oh-ho yeah, and if you磖e only in need)

When you磖e down now
When you on the street
When eveninfalls
Somehow I will comfort you

I磍l take the bow
Whoa when darkness comes
And there磗 no one you love around

Just like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
(Like a bridge)
Just like a bridge
(Over troubled) over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver moon
Sail on by
Your time has come
To shine all of your dreams
Are on their way
(See how they shine?)

Ooooh if you ever need a friend
(Need a friend)
Look around and sailing by
Just like a bridge
(Bridge (over) over (troubled) water
I磍l be there to lay me down
(Like a bridge)
Like a bridge over (troubled water) troubled water
I will lay me down
Ooooh I磍l be your bridge
Yes I will

(Don磘 trouble the water)
Said I wouldn磘
(Give it up)
Well (why don磘 you, why don磘 you, let it be?)
Uh-huh (still water run deep)
I know that
(Yes it do) yeah (oh-oh-oh yeah)

Still the water (don磘 trouble the water)
Yeah
(Give it up, why don磘 you, why don磘 you, let it be)
Talkinbout still water
(Still water run deep)
You know they run deep
(Yes it do) uh-huh (oh-ho-ho-yeah)

Well I磎 gonna be your bridge yeah!
(Don磘 trouble the water)
The troubled water (give it up)
Oh!
FADES-
(Why don磘 you, why don磘 you, let it be?)
Come on come on
Walk out on me
(Still water run deep)
Oh
(Yes it do)..
