all day I face the barren waste
without the taste of water : cool water
old Dan and I with throats burned dry
and souls that cry for water : cool clear water

the nights are cool and I'm a fool
each star's a pool of water : cool water
but with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
and carry on to water : cool clear water

the shadows sway and seem to say
tonight we pray for water: cool water
and way up there He'll hear our prayer
and show us where there's water : cool clear water

Dan's feet are sore : he's yearning for
just one thing more than water : cool water
like me I guess he'd like to rest
where there's no quest for water : cool clear water

keep a-movin' Dan • don't ya listen to him Dan
he's a devil of a man and he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan can you see that big green tree?
where the water's running free
and it's waiting there for me and you ...
