The River
Ken Dodd Lyrics


So still runs the river
on it's journey to the sea

So still beats my heart for
you're far so far away from me

So still runs the river
while I wait upon the shore

Amore retornae for my love
goes on forever more
Like the river forever more

I threw a pebble in the river
We watched the ripples flow

Beside my darling
see my darling

That's just the way
our love will grow

And then I kissed you
how I remember
But oh I never knew

That like the ripples
on the water

Your love would
soon be fading too

So still runs the river
on it's journey to the sea

So still beats my heart for
you're far so far away from me

So still runs the river
while I wait upon the shore

Amore retornae for my love
goes on forever more
Like the river forever more
Like the river forever more...

I think that Ken is really under-rated.  Never cruel, never crude but always entertaining and funny.  Great voice and a comedian who really loves his audience  rather that treating them disrespect.

Ken was the greatest funny man and singer ever had simply the RIP

annie482000 apparently at the end of his shows when the family's left he'd go on to share the blue jokes.
