Ol' Man River - Frank Sinatra (弗蘭克·辛納屈)

Here we all work 'long the Mississippi

 

Here we all work while the white

Folk play

 

Pullin' them boats from the dawn

Till sunset

 

Gettin' no rest till the judgment day

 

Don't look up and don't look down

 

Ya don't dast make the white boss

Frown

 

Bend your knees and bow your head

 

And pull that rope until you're dead

 

Let me go 'way from the Mississippi

 

Let me go 'way from the white man

 

Boss

 

Show me that stream called the River

 

Jordan

 

That's the old stream that I long to

Cross

 

Ol' Man River that Ol' Man River

 

He must know somepin' but he

Don't say nothin'

 

He just keeps rollin' he keeps on

Rollin' along

 

He don't plant taters and he don't

Plant cotton

And them what plants 'em is soon

Forgotten

 

But Ol' Man River jest keeps

 

Rollin' along

 

You and me we sweat and strain

 

Bodies all achin' and wracked

With pain

 

Tote that barge and lift that bale

 

Ya get a little drunk and ya lands

 

In ja-ail

 

I gets weary and so sick of tryin'

 

I'm tired of livin' but I'm feared

Of dyin'

 

And Ol' Man River he just keeps

Rollin' along
