Pere Ubu – Down By The River lyrics
Down by the river
The corn is creepin'
I cry for my lover
My lover's sleepin'
Bad as it gets
Gotten worse
I want to run
Had to learn to crawl

The house on fire
The treaty's broken
I call for the law
The law is a token
As bad as it gets
It's gotten worse
I want to run
I had to learn to crawl

This trip is the worst
I don't mean maybe
I call for the captain
She cries like a baby
As bad as it gets
It's gotten worse
I want to run
I had to learn to crawl first

Bye-bye
Bye-bye baby my friend
Bye-bye!
Bye-bye baby
And she cries
And she cries
And she
And then she

I mighta not known
I mighta not guessed
I mighta been fine if she'd never confessed
As bad as it gets
It's gotten worse
I want to run
I had to learn to crawl

Bye-bye
Bye-bye baby my friend
Bye-bye!
Bye-bye baby
It's time to leave
But I don't know when
