  • If you're a guy who's had a gal in each and every port
    And you've forgot the rules of love that life has always taught
    And if you broke as many hearts as ripples in a stream
    Well, brother, here's the only way that you can be redeemed

    Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
    Change your reckless way o'livin', cross over the bridge
    Leave you fickle past behind you and true romance will find you
    Brother, cross over the bridge

    If you have built a boat to take you to the greener side
    And if that boat is built of ev'ry lie you ever lied
    You'll never reach the Promised Land of love, I guarantee
    Cause lies cannot hold water and you'll sink into the sea

    Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
    Change your reckless way o'livin', cross over the bridge
    Leave you fickle past behind you and true romance will find you
    Brother, cross over the bridge

    I know it isn't easy to resist temptation's call
    But think of how your broken heart will hurt you when you fall
    Cause some day you will find that you are hopelessly in love
    And she'll belong to someone else as sure as stars above

    Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
    Change your reckless way o'livin', cross over the bridge
    Leave you fickle past behind you and true romance will find you
    Brother, cross over the bridge
