The Lyrics

I read in the papers that some 25% of the Chinese waters are polluted beyond any usability. One of the worst sufferers has been Huanghe - The Yellow River.
Heilongjiang, it is black and cold
And Yangtze's flow that is grand and old
But there's one river whom the bell has tolled -
- the Yellow River

It's not this time we would expect flood
or that water had turned into blood
the trouble's more deep than just sludge or mud
- the Yellow River

Yellow River, Yellow River, is so unclean and so pollute -
Yellow River, Yellow River, has heavy metals and oil and soot -

Has so much contaminations, has so much of filth
Tomorrow night some fertilizer will drain of the tilth
At banks of Yellow River!

Chinese rivers are in trouble deep
as waste into their flow does seep
Oil slicks float - now that's really creep
at Yellow River -

Mills their waste in that river dump
Sometimes you'll find an sludgy lump
which has passed trough of a sewage pump
at Yellow River -

Yellow River, Yellow River, is so unclean and so pollute -
Yellow River, Yellow River, has heavy metals and oil and soot -

Has so much contaminations, has so much of filth
Tomorrow night some fertilizer will drain of the tilth
Into the Yellow River!

Yellow River, Yellow River, is so unclean and so pollute -
Yellow River, Yellow River, has heavy metals and oil and soot -

Has so much contaminations, has so much of filth
Tomorrow night some fertilizer will drain of the tilth
Into the Yellow River!
