Now's not the time for wailin'
While there's water in the river
We'll all lay down and cry when it's gone
I'll be a jackass and laugh at every sunrise
Celebrate the day when it's born
And we'll cruise one more time down the river
While our hearts overflow-ow with joy
And we'll reminisce our days down Salisbury Street
Salisbury Street, Salisbury Street
Yeah we'll cruise one more time down the Murray
Don't wave the river gums goodbye
Just thank 'em for the shade and the storie-ie-ies
Tomorrow there'll be ti-ime to cry
So untie the ropes my darlin's
There's broken cloud today
And that lucky 'ole' will paint those billows blush
Don't wanna miss the sundown shinin' on the water
Chasin' sneaky shadows through the bush
And we'll cruise one more time down the river
While our hearts overflow-ow with joy
And we'll reminisce our days down Salisbury Street
Salisbury Street, Salisbury Street
Yeah we'll cruise one more time down the Murray
Don't wave the river gu-ums goodbye
Just thank 'em for the shade and the storie-ie-ies
Tomorrow there'll be ti-ime to cry
Tomorrow there'll be ti-ime to cry
Tomorrow there'll be ti-ime to cry
