Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges’ flickering light Silently flows the river to the sea And the Barges too float silently Chorus Barges I would like to go with you I would like to sail the ocean blue Barges have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold Out of my window, looking in the night I can see the barges’ flickering light Starboard shines green and port is glowing red I can see them flickering far ahead Chorus How my heart longs to go away with you As I watch you sail the ocean blue But I must stand beside my window clear And watch you sail away from here
This is at least a Girl Scout Song. Most of it was written by a sick child watching a river out of her hospital window. She died before she could finish the second half of the last verse.
