Lyrics

River Reaper

 

The mist settles grey upon this land

The birds fall silent for they understand

 

The River Reaper

The River Reaper walks

The River Reaper

The River Reaper stalks

 

Creeping past the Lily pads

Don't fall into his crystal eyes

Shadows flinch as he walks by

And happy dogs begin to cry

 

Where the river bends he lies in wait

For fishermen casting bait

Or little children with careless feet

An icy edge, a tasty treat

 

For trout that stray too close to flies

For cats who've used up their nine lives

 

  >>> break <<<

 

The sun sets low as night begins

And the water's sheen reflects his grin

 

The River Reaper

The River Reaper walks

The River Reaper

The River Reaper stalks

 

Creeping past the Lily pads

Don't fall into his crystal eyes

Shadows flinch as he walks by

And happy dogs begin to cry

 

Where the river bends he lies in wait

For fishermen casting bait

Or little children with careless feet

An icy edge, a tasty treat

 

For trout that stray too close to flies

For cats who've used up their nine lives
