"The River of No Return" - Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962)
"The River of No Return"

If you listen you can hear it call
Wail-a-ree [wail-a-reeeee]
There is a river called THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Sometimes it's peaceful and sometimes wild and free!
Love is a trav'ler on THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Swept on for ever to be lost in the stormy sea
[Wail-a-ree] I can hear the river call [ no return, no return ]
no return, no return [wail-a-ree]
I can hear my lover call come to me
[ no return, no return ]
I lost my love on the river and for ever my heart will yearn
Gone, gone for ever down THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Wail-a-ree [Wail-a-ree] wail-a-re-e-ee
He'll never return to me! [ no return, no return
