That the river is wide, The river is long, now. The water gets deep, As our love gets strong, now. Oh baby don't fight, Girl all tonight, You belong to me. Up on the roof, We heard the gentle rain. With the rythm of, Our heartbeats, Down it came. As it hit each rock, He washed away the pain. Can stop one drop of rain. That the river is wide, The river is long, now. The water gettin' deep, As our love gets strong, now. It's too late to turn the tide, baby.
