Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasure in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

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, too, go silently

Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasure in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges’ flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see them signaling far ahead

Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasure in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

Away from my window looking in the night
I will watch till they are out of sight
Carrying their cargoes far across the sea
How I wish that some day they’d take me

Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasure in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

How my heart wants to fly away with you
As I watch you sail the ocean blue
But I must stay beside my window clear
As I watch you sail away from here

Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasure in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?
