Cool Water
Frankie Laine Lyrics


All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a movin', Dan, don't cha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
He spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me and you

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water
Cool water
But with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water
Water, water, water

Keep a movin', Dan, don't cha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
He spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me and you

Cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water

All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a movin', Dan, don't cha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
He spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me and you

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water
Cool water
But with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water
Water, water, water

Keep a movin', Dan, don't cha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
He spreads the burning sand with water

Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me and you

Cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water

No one will has or will ever sing like Frankie Laine. He has the most powerful & dramatic voice which makes his songs so full of energy whatever he sings. However he can also turn his great voice into a slow heart warming ballad. LEGEND

My older brother bought the original 78 rpm record in 1955 before being posted overseas with the army, but I had no record player on which to play it ( I was 11 and my parents couldn't afford one) but they did buy a gramophone in 1959 and I played this record to death, and now I'm 72 years old and thanks to Youtube can listen to it anytime.

On 78! I inherited Blue Moon by a bloke called Elvis.
If you are from my side of Manchester that might mean something more.

My older brother did likewise, Ian.

Let's face it, Frankie could cover almost any type of song with his unique style.

Wayne Fontanz

Epic song from a bygone era sung magnificently by the inimitable Frankie Laine. Wonderful captivating song.

Are you Glyn from Gorton?

This man was made to sing this stuff. He has a conviction in his voice, and he sings like he has lived every line.
