All day I've faced a barren waste 
Without a taste of water 
Cool water. 
Old Dan and I with throats burnt dry 
And souls that cry for water 
Cool, clear water. 

Keep a movin' Dan, don't you listen to him, Dan 
He's a devil, not a man, and he spreads the burning sand with water. 
Dan, can't you see that big green tree 
Where the water's running free and its waiting there for me and you. 
Cool, clear water. Water
Cool, clear water.

The shadows sway and seem to say 
Tonight we pray for water 
Cool water. 
And way up there you hear our prayer 
And show us where there's water 
Cool, clear water.
