Alas, I Cannot Swim – Laura Marling

26 Feb

Theres a house across the river
but alas i cannot swim
And a garden of such beauty
that the flowers seem to grin
Theres a house across the river
but alas i cannot swim
I’ll live my life regretting that i never jumped in!

Theres a boy across the river
with short black curly hair
He wants to be my lover
and i want to be his peer
Theres a boy across the river
but alas i cannot swim
And i never will get to put my arms around him

Theres a life across the river
that was ment for me
instead i live my life in constant misery
Theres a life across the river
but i do not see
why i should please those who will never be pleased

There is gold across the river
but i dont want none
There is gold across the river
but i dont want none

Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun!
Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun!

There is gold across the river
but i dont want none
I would rather be dry
then held up by a golden gun

saying
Work more
earn more
live more
have more fun!

saying
Work more
earn more
live more
have more fun!

saying
Work more
earn more
live more
have more fun!

“Yee-ha”
