River Without An Ocean          © J. Birch 2005.     Duet - Standard       JustAttitudes.com 

 

            The newsman says     it’s another cold year                                                  

            The newsman says     we should all    live in fear                                              

            The newsman says     the millennium bug                                                                

            The newsman says     asteroids above                                                                  

                                                                                                                                         

            The newsman says     it’s a tragedy

            The newsman says     it’s a     catastrophe

            The newsman says     we should all    live in sorrow

            The newsman says     we should all    worry   about tomorrow

 

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my river

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my sea

 

          For what is life    without emotion?

          What is life     without devotion?

          What is love     without the motion?

          What is a river    without an ocean?

 

            Mars is nice    this time of year

            For the universal    pioneer

 

            But,   the newsman says    the ozone layer

            The newsman says     he’s comin in a plane. Yeah?

            The newsman says     we should all    live in sorrow

            But you know   the funny thing is     the newsman   he can’t even tell us the weather    properly    for tomorrow!

 

            The newsman says     it’s another cold year

            The newsman says     we should all    live in fear

            The newsman says     asteroids above

            The newsman said     the millennium bug

 

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my river

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my sea

 

          For what is life    without emotion?

          What is life     without devotion?

          What is love     without the motion?

          What is a river    without an ocean?

 

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my river

          If the rain should fall

          I know you are my sea

 

          For what is life    without emotion?

          What is life     without devotion?

          What is love     without the motion?

          What is a river    without an ocean?

          Yesterday      my heart broke

          I weren’t gonna to live so long

          I was loosin’,     blues’n

          Because my baby said “So long”

 

          But today     I’m o.k.

          And all my blues have gone

          Why?

          I guess    I was wrong

 

Ch.    Boomerang!

          I got a call last night

          Boomerang!

          She said she’d hop an early flight 

 

          Boomerang!

          Ev’rything is gonna be all right

          Boomerang!

          We made love in the moonlight

 

Br.1   Ain’t it funny    how at the end    of a hard day

          The clouds    always seem so grey?

          But then    in the morning light

          It always     seems    so right?

 

          Chorus…

 

          Tomorrow!

          Is a sunny day

          Tomorrow!

          Throw your cares away

 

          Listen!

          Listen to what I say

          Tomorrow!

          Tomorrow, It will be okay

 

          Bridge 1…

 

          Chorus ….

 

          Boomerang!

          Don’t let your troubles get you down

          Boomerang!

          She will turn around

 

          Boomerang!

          Don’t you pack

          Boomerang!

          Your baby’s commin’ back.

 

          Long Pregnant Silence………………………..

 

Ch.    Boomerang!                     (Repeat & Fade Chorus)  

          I got a call last night

          Boomerang!

          She said she’d hop an early flight 

 

          Boomerang!

          Ev’rything is gonna be all right

          Boomerang!

          We made love in the moonlight.
