"Go back," said one goat to the other, "there is no room for both of us".
"Why should I go back?", said the other goat. "Why should not you go back?"
" You must go back", said the first goat, "because I am stronger than you."
"You are not stronger than I", said the second goat.
"We will see about that", said the first goat, and he put down his horns to fight.
"Stop!", said the second goat. " If we fight, we shall both fall into the river and be drowned.
Instead I have a plan- I shall lie down, and you may walk over me."

Orinoco Flow Lyrics


Let me sail, let me sail,
let the Orinoco Flow,
let me reach, let me beach
on the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail,

let me crash upon your shore,


let me reach, let me beach
far beyond the Yellow Sea.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
From Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon,
from Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
from Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea.
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up,
adieu. Ooh.
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up,
adieu. Ooh.
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up,
adieu. Aah...
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
From the North to the South,
Ebudae into Khartoum,
from the deep sea of Clouds
to the island of the moon,
carry me on the waves to the lands I've never been,
carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen.
We can sail, we can sail on the
Orinoco Flow,
we can sail, we can sail.
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can steer, we can near
with Rob Dickins at the wheel,
we can sigh, say goodbye Ross and his
dependencies
we can sail, we can sail
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can reach, we can beach,

on the shores of Tripoli,


we can sail, we can sail
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea,
we can sail, we can sail
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon,
we can sail, we can sail
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can reach, we can beach,
far beyond the Yellow Sea,
we can sail, we can sail
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
we can sail, we can sail.
(sail away, sail away, sail away)
We can sail, we can sail.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
