lyrics

I SAID ANDREW GET OFF YOUR ASS
BANDIT NEEDS TO TAKE A WALK BY THE RIVER
HIS LEG IS FUCKED UP
BUT MAYBE HE’LL FORGET ABOUT IT...

SO WE WENT DOWN THE RIVER...
VENTURA, VENTURA RIVER...

THE FIRST THING WE’VE NOTICED WHEN WE WALKED UP
A BRUSH FIRE HAD COME THROUGH THE AREA
BURNED A LOT OF TREES...
I SAID HEY! THERE’S A LITTLE PATH OVER HERE
WE CAN TAKE IT, IT’LL GET US TO THE RIVER...
PEOPLE OF THE RIVER... OF THE RIVER

SO WE WALKED ON DOWN THERE
THERE WAS A LOT OF PAINT ON THE WALL
ON THE BRIDGE THAT WENT ACROSS THE RIVER
SPRAY CANS AND PAINT
WERE LAYING ALL AROUND THE FLOOR

YOU’VE GOT, YOU’VE GOT ME NOW
WITH THE PEOPLE OF THE RIVER
YOU’VE GOT, YOU’VE GOT ME NOW

WE VENTURED A LITTLE ON DOWN
AROUND THEN RIVER BEND (PEOPLE OF THE RIVER)
GRAFFITIES ON THE WALL EVERYWHERE
I SAID BANDIT LET’S GO AROUND THIS BEND...
THERE WAS A BUNCH OF PEOPLE HANGING OUT THERE
THEY HAD CAR BATTERIES HOOKED UP TO THEIR RADIOS

IT WAS THE PEOPLE OF THE RIVER...

MATTRESSES PILED UP FEET HIGH
MIGHT’VE NOT TOOK A BATH IN A WEEK
THEY DIDN’T SEEM TO CARE

‘CAUSE YOU’VE GOT ME, YOU’VE GOT ME
YOU’VE GOT ME NOW
(THERE PEOPLE BY THE RIVER)
WITH THE PEOPLE OF THE RIVER
I SAID YOU’VE GOT ME NOW
WITH THE PEOPLE BY THE RIVER

I SAID HEY, MAN, IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE WATER
WE GOT TO WALK AROUND THE WALL.
THERE WAS MEXICAN PEOPLE THROWING NETS
TRYING TO CATCH SOME FISH.
THEY DIDN’T SEEM TO CARE THAT WE WERE THERE
I LOOKED UP ON THE WALL...
THEY WOULD USE IT FOR THEIR TOILET
THERE WAS TOILET PAPER SMEARED ON THE WALL
SHIT BLEW OUT OF THEIR ASS THERE UP ON THE FLOOR

I SAID YOU’VE GOT ME, YOU’VE GOT ME NOW
PEOPLE BY THE RIVER, WOULD SHIT UP ON THE WALL
PEOPLE BY THE RIVER...
I SAID YOU’VE GOT ME NOW, OH, OH...
THE PEOPLE BY THE RIVER
PEOPLE BY, PEOPLE BY, PEOPLE BY THE RIVER...
SHITTING ON THE WALL
OH, OH... PEOPLE BY THE RIVER...

BANDIT TURNED AND LOOKED AT ME
HE SAID I WOULD NOT SWIM HERE
(PEOPLE BY THE RIVER)
I SAID I DON’T KNOW BOY! (PEOPLE BY THE RIVER)
I TOLD MY DOG I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN SWIM HERE
(OH, OH... PEOPLE BY THE RIVER)
‘CAUSE THEY SHIT UP ON THE WALL...
