lyrics

Oh, Andy, you’re so impatient,
You see too far, too much, too high, too soon, and you
Want it to happen
But I found out long ago
Can’t push that river
I tried and everybody tries, but you
Can’t push that river [breath]
Even though you think it moves too slow

You want to get out of that manufacturing line
But you’re afraid of that hole in your pocket, and you
Want to leave right at this minute but oh, no,
There’s a delivery time on it
But oh, oh Annie
I found out long ago
You look down to see your face, the river’s already moved on
Can’t push that river
It just flows along in its own time

I hear you were happy yesterday
Green, green grass and a warm yellow sun
Now the rain beats down and the river flows
A deep dark blue
It’s the human condition
Two sides of one human coin
Sunshine and rain, sunshine and rain
Sunshine and rain, sunshine and rain
You tried and everybody tries, but you
Can’t push that river
River flows along in its own time

In its own time…
The river’s here and you’re gone
River’s here and you’ve moved on…
