Up a lazy river by the old mill run
Lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger awhile in the shade of a tree
Throw away your troubles,
Dream with me.
Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Wakes the mornin'
We'll roll along
May be blue skies 'bove
Everyone's in love
Up a lazy river
How happy we'll be
Up a lazy river with me
Up a lazy river by the old mill run
That lazy, lazy river in the noon day sun
You can linger for awhile in the shade of a tree
Throw away your troubles, baby
Dream a dream of me.
Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Wakes a brand new mornin'
Where we can roll along
There may be blue skies up above
But as long as we're in love
Yeah, we'll be up a lazy river
How happy we could be
Up a lazy river with me.
Oh, that half way mark, yeah.
Up a lazy river where that robin's song
Awakes a brand new mornin'
We can roll along
There are blue skies up above
And as long as we're in love
We'll be up a lazy river
Up a crazy, lazy, river
Up a lazy river
I ain't goin' your way, get out of my way
Up a lazy river with me.
