Lyrics

When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes,
I will dry them all
I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
When you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

    Lyrics

    [Chorus:]

    You’re way too beautiful girl

    That’s why it’ll never work

    You’ll have me suicidal, suicidal

    When you say it’s over

    Damn all these beautiful girls

    They only wanna do you dirt

    They’ll have you suicidal, suicidal

    When they say it’s over

    [Verse 1:]

    See it started at the park

    Used to chill after dark

    Oh when you took my heart

    That’s when we fell apart

    Cause we both thought

    That love lasts forever (lasts forever)

    They say we’re too young

    To get ourselves sprung

    Oh we didn’t care

    We made it very clear

    And they also said

    That we couldn’t last together (last together)


    [Refrain:]

    See it’s very define girl,

    one of a kind

    But you mash up my mind

    You have to get declined

    Oh Lord…

    My baby is driving me crazy


    [Repeat Chorus]


    [Verse 2:]

    It was back in ’99

    Watchin’ movies all the time

    Oh when I went away

    For doin’ my first crime

    And I never thought

    That we was gonna see each other (see each other)

    And then I came out

    Mami moved me down South

    Oh I’m with my girl

    Who I thought was my world

    It came out to be

    That she wasn’t the girl for me (girl for me)


    [Repeat Refrain and Chorus]


    [Verse 3:]

    Now we’re fussin’

    And now we’re fightin’

    Please tell me why

    I’m feelin’ slighted

    And I don’t know

    How to make it better (make it better)

    You’re datin’ other guys

    You’re tellin’ me lies

    Oh I can’t believe

    What I’m seein’ with my eyes

    I’m losin’ my mind

    And I don’t think it’s clever (think it’s clever)


    You’re way too beautiful girl

    That’s why it’ll never work

    You’ll have me suicidal, suicidal, suicidal…

  2. Oh, happy day! Love both of the YouTubes. These kids have so much fun performing and they even seem to have “groupies.” Thanks, Mark.

    • Not being a teenaged girl I don’t do the high pitched screaming thing but otherwise I’m an unabashed Drakies groupy myself. :-) I love this choir’s singing, they sing so superbly and I love seeing how they get so much back in return for what they put in. World class performers.
