BARGES

OUT OF MY WINDOW, LOOKING THRU THE NIGHT,
I CAN SEE THE BARGES' FLICKERING LIGHT.
SILENTLY FLOWS THE RIVER TO THE
SEA AND THE BARGES TO GO 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 THRU THE NIGHT,
I CAN SEE THE BARGES' FLICKERING LIGHT.
STARBOARD SHINES GREEN AND PORT IS GLOWING RED,
I CAN SEE THE BARGES' STRAIGHT AHEAD.
CHORUS

AMAZING GRACE, HOW SWEET THE SOUND,
