Lyrics

We’ll go
Down to the river to play in the hay
Yeah, now that it’s the summer,
We can play every day
And we’ll build a fire in the night
Because the sun needs to sleep
And we have songs to swop and to keep
We have songs to swop

And I remember a time
When you would sing from your heart
And you mesmerised the crowd
Who couldn’t tell you apart
From the name that you loved
Before you found you were wrong
Oh but, you know, we’re all just trying to get along
We’re all just trying to get

Down to the river to play in the hay
Yeah, now that it’s the summer,
We can play every day
And we’ll build a fire in the night
Because the sun needs to sleep
And we have songs to swop and to keep
We have songs to swop

And I remember a time
When we had climbed to the top
And, the crowd, they had cheered,
There was no way we could stop
And then we ran down the mountain
Because it’s fast and it’s free
Ah, you know, you know you are the devil in me
But we’ll still go

Down to the river to play in the hay
Yeah, now that it’s the summer,
We can play every day
And we’ll build a fire in the night
Because the sun needs to sleep
And we have songs to swop and to keep
We have songs to swop

And I remember a time
When we would break all the rules
Pass the hours with the games
We used to play after school
And I’m always the loser
But I still like playing pool
I am your truth-telling fool
But we’ll still go
Yeah we’ll still go
Oh we’ll all go

Down to the river to play in the hay
Yeah, now that it’s the summer,
We can play every day
And we’ll build a fire in the night
Because the sun needs to sleep
And we have songs to swop and to keep
We have songs to send us to sleep
And there won’t be a peep
