"Barges"

           
    1. Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flick'ring light.
Silently flows the river to the sea,
And the barges, too, go silently.
   
      Refrain    
      Barges, I would like to go with you;
I would like to sail the ocean blue.
Barges, have you treasures in you hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?
   
   
2.
Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flick'ring light.

Starboard shines green and port is glowing red,
You can see them flick'ring far ahead.
   
      Refrain    
      Barges, I would like to go with you;
I would like to sail the ocean blue.
Barges, have you treasures in you hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?
