Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flickering light.
Silently flows the river to the sea,
And the barges to goo silently.
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?
