Songtekst

Rivers Of Babylon:
====

By the rivers of Babylon where we sat down
Yeah, we wept when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon where we sat down
Yeah, we wept when we remembered Zion

Then the wicked carried us away in captivity
Requiring from us a song
Now how shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land
Then the wicked carried us away in captivity
Requiring from us a song
Now how shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land

Let the words of our mouths
And the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight be tonight
Let the words of our mouths
And the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight be tonight

By the rivers of Babylon where we sat down
Yeah, we wept when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon where we sat down
There we wept when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon (prophets of Babylon)
Where we sat down (you gotta sing the song)
Yeah, we wept (sing a song of love)
When we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon (prophets of Babylon)
Where we sat down (you hear the people cry)
There he wept (they need the power)
When he remembered Zion (ooh, got the power)

By the rivers of Babylon where we sat down
Yeah. there we wept....
