Beach Boys Steamboat Lyrics

Last updated: 05/27/2010 11:00:00 AM

The river's a bed of sweet berries and flowers
Banks of thirsty lies
(Please be careful)
The stream is an eyeglass of heroes
Bridged with bright replies
The creek is a funnel of forgiveness
Winning every prize
Steamboat of living ever faithfully ride.

The river's a dream in a waltz time
Banks of jasper glaze
(Have a ball and sing)
The stream is a timepiece of children
Bridged with crystal haze
The creek is a trumpet of hard times
Blowing tasty days
Steamboat of living ever faithfully glide.

Don't worry mister Fulton
We'll get your steamboat rollin'.

One of the most beautiful of the later Beach Boys songs. Appearing on the Holland album, Steamboat churnes along in a melodic haze highlighting Carl Wilson's quite sublime vocal talents and some lovely crazy lyrics...
