Super flumina Babylonis

Super flumina Babylonis illic sedimus
et flevimus dum recordaremur tui, Sion:
in salicibus in medio eius, suspendimus organa nostra.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,
yea, we wept when we remembered thee, O Sion.
And in the midst of the willows we hung up our harps.

Psalm 136 (137): 1-2

I find that Boney M's has superseded all other versions in my mind's ear.
It's irresistibly catchy; I have it running in my head on continuous loop now. One of the great hits of its era and deservedly so.
