Come along with me
Upon this broad old river.
Come along with me
Upon this broad old river.
We will see what we can do.
For when we work together
In all kinds of weather
There's no telling what the power of the people and the river can do.

Don't you be scared
Upon this broad old river
Don't you be scared
Upon this broad old river
Rockin'and rollin'
On all those waves
For when we work together
In all kinds of weather
No matter how the wind's gonna blow, we can be saved.

Don'tcha give up hope
Upon this broad old river
Don'tcha give up hope
Upon this broad old river
Sooner or later
The tide will turn
And when we work together
In all kinds of weather
The teachers and the students they both will learn.

We're gonna learn the ropes
Out on this broad old river
We're gonna learn the ropes
Out on this broad old river
Bowline and longsplice
Clive hitch and square
And when we work together
In all kinds of weather
Like a lotta little fibers of rope we're gonna hang in there.

‎[Come for a swim
Into this broad old river
Come for a swim
Into this broad old river
Bring the family down
To the river shore
You can see winning
Just by going swimming
You can see what we mean 'cause it's cleaner than it was before.]‎
