Walkin' along by the LA River,
This river's such a joke and so am I,
I don't know why I should believe her,
I don't care what she says, wanna die,

I'd jump right in the drink, but there's no water,
I'd jump right in the and sink away from here,
Poor river, empty river,
I'm feeling just like you,
I'm feeling just like you,

Walkin' by the LA river,
Steping on broken glass, kicking cans,
Shes telling me I don't even know her,
I guess there's some things I don't understand,

I'd love to float away like old Tom Sawyer,
I'd love to run away and be Huck Finn,
Poor river, LA river,
I'm feeling just like you,

Walkin' along by the LA River,
Reading graffiti and throwing stones,
She's looking for someone to deliver,
She's doesn't give a damn that I'm alone,

I'd dive right in and drown, but there's no water,
My head may hit the ground, but Im still here,
Poor river, LA River,
I'm feeling just like you
