Rowers gliding on the river
Canadian geese crap along the bank
Back wheel of my bike begins to quiver
The chain is wrapped around the crank

Old ladies, who must be doggie training
Walking, throwing balls, chasing all the sheep
While the farmer stands around and he's complaining
His mad cows are being put to sleep

I'm a Pisces fish and the rivers runs through my soul

Smoke signals from the brewery
Like someone in there found the latest Pope
In a vat of beer that keeps pumping out with fury
While the church bell ringer's tangled in his rope

But there's a temple on an island
I think of all the Gods and what they feel
You can only find them in the deepest silence
I got to get off of this big wheel

I'm a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul
I'm a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul

I'll be swimming until I can find those waters
That one unbounded ocean of bliss
That's flowing through your parents, sons and daughters
But still an easy thing for us to miss

Blades go skimming through the water
I hear the coxswain shouting his instructions about
With this crew, oh, it could be a tall order
Have we time to sort all of these things out?

Some times my life it seems like fiction
Some of the days, it's really quite serene
I'm a living proof of all life's contradictions
One half's going where the other half's just been

I'm a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul
I'm a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul

I'm a Pisces fish and the river runs through my soul

Yup, drab and repetitive. If it wasn't George, it'd be slagged the way it should be.
Hmmm....drab?? The other evening I caught about half of VH1's piece on Warren Zevon. I watched because I was a big fan back in the 70s, but didn't really keep up after that. I was uncomfortable as I watched: seemed like Warren was mostly focused on his celebrity. Anyway, I'm listening to George this a.m., and it struck me that I find this much more moving than Warren's last stuff. Of course, if I was slapping something into the cd player, it would more likely be Excitable Boy!

I don't know if it's 'cause I'm older now, and have had a couple intimate conversations with Mr. Death myself, but for whatever reason this last body of work from George really speaks to me. The "quiet Beatle" indeed.
AC, I agree. He's going deeper here.
:cry: Why did the Beatles have to break up? :cry: :evil: And why didn\'t GH retire after that? :evil:
Gee...I find this to be quite a moving piece.
perfection! :notworthy:
Great lyrics and sound. I love the album and think Lynn exercised great restraint. There\'s only one track that may be a tad overproduced, but the overall sound is very nice. A great last album that makes one sad that like John, he left us too soon.

not bad, but for his fish songs...i really like \"fish in the sand\" off \"cloud nine\" a lot more. it is a much happier song.

He's dead, Jim.

This song makes me so happy!! Even the part about the birds crapping. He is missed....
I think the comment was, the album was more produced than George would have liked it to have been.
I had heard somewhere that Jeff Lynne thought that he (Lynne) had overproduced this album.
Should have known that I\'d hear this first here. Was struck by the quiet intellegince and deep but understated spirituality of the lyrics, before I knew who I was listening to. As a fellow \"traveler to the East\", one who was into my pre-Buddhist,Indian guru devotion period back in the days of \"My Sweet Lord\", I\'ve always been especially fond of George. I found this quite beautiful and inspiring as evidence of the way his beliefs remained central to his life and art as he faced death, transcending any temptation to see \"George by the Ganges\" as a mere photo-op illustrating quaint Sixties cultural trends. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
