Lyrics
Rain on the river turns the torrent to a flood
Swim or you'll never rise above
Two lonely people can mend a broken heart
Love and you'll never fall apart
But can you tell me why?

They made a good bowl of chili at the jazz club
They played a good game of football in Mucron
They ripped everyone off at the top rank, babe
If you could ever get into their suite

Avenue, Tombola and Social
We just drove right on by
We was on our way to the big time, babe
To the great gold record in the sky

Sun in the morning brings the flowers from a bud
Hail to the giver, life and love
Two lonely people can mend a broken heart
Love and you'll never fall apart
But can you tell me why?

They made a good bowl of chili at the jazz club
They played a good game of football in Mucron
They ripped everyone off at the top rank, babe
If you could ever get into their suite

Avenue, Tombola and Social
We just drove right on by
We was on our way to the big time, babe
To the great gold record in the sky

Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me, tell me why?

To the great gold record in the sky
