If you're a guy who's had a gal in each and every port
And you forgot the rules of love that life has always taught
And if you broke as many hearts as ripples in a stream,
Well, brother, here's the only way that you can be redeemed:
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin', cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you,
And true romance will find you,
Brother, cross over the bridge
If you have built a boat to take you to the greener side,
And if the boat is built of every lie you ever lied,
You'll never reach the Promised Land of Love, I guarantee
'Cause lies cannot hold water and you'll sink into the sea
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin', cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you,
And true romance will find you,
Brother, cross over the bridge
I know it isn't easy to resist temptation's call
But think of how your broken heart will hurt you when you fall
'Cause someday you will find that you are hopelessly in love
And she'll belong to someone else as sure as stars above
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin', cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you,
And true romance will find you,
Brother, cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
