lyrics

Let's make our move
Down to the river
Where life will float by slowly

We'll trade our cars
In for a house boat
You've always said we work too hard

Just take a breath, inhale
It's Stillwater, MN air
You turn up your nose, but to me
Dead fish never smelled so sweet

We'll raise our kids
Here on the river
They'll learn to swim like dolphins

You teach them to read
And I'll teach them skills that
All little lumberjacks need

Just dip your toes in first
The water is safe and warm
You ask, "Why's it yellow and brown?"
Well it's honey and chocolate to me

When times are tough we pull
Up anchor and follow the rising tide
But as we float along
Our friends and family pass us by

So let's not be hasty

Let's find another town
And a house anchored to the ground
The river life was serene
But only for one daydream
