Barges Song

 

Lyrics

Out of my window, looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the Barges too float silently

Chorus
Barges I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges have you treasures in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold

Out of my window, looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see them flickering far ahead

Chorus

How my heart longs to go away with you
As I watch you sail the ocean blue
But I must stand beside my window clear
And watch you sail away from here

CommentThis is at least a Girl Scout Song. Most of it was written by a sick child watching a river out of her hospital window. She died before she could finish the second half of the last verse.
