Moxy Fruvous – River Valley lyrics

Who will save the river valley? That's my drinking water
This was once a sacred place, now look at what we've got here
I'll pretend there isn't any problem, just do my job
And, if I don't like the standard of living, go move to Russia...
Me an' Pete went swimming last night, he's my friend from boy scouts
All the fish were floating upright, we got scared and we got out
Mother says don't play down where your father does his job
You know he's got to make a living, or move to Russia...
(this is my world, this is my world, don't let it go away
Is it a crime spending my time dreaming of yesterday?)
Meet me in the river valley, you could tell me stories
'Bout a time before pinstripe suits, Dippers, Grits and Tories
My mother sang the song her mother taught her
We'd be swimming off in cool cool water
And when she'd call us from the yard
Running home it felt like god...
Is your favourite place controlled by developing ambitions?
Do you think you'll have some power signing a petition?
Are you fine with your surroundings? Are they gonna crumble?
I'm living in the river valley, come and join me for a tumble?
High up above, see on the cars along the viaduct
From sunrise to the last call - they push their luck
But that would be fine
If the world was yours and you were mine
Who will save the river valley?
Who will save the river valley?
Who will save the river valley?
Who will save the river valley?
