Row, Row, Row Your Boat
 
 


by Bruce Lansky and Bill Dodds
 
   
(sing to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”)

Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the creek.
You might get your bottom wet
if you spring a leak.

Row, row, row your boat,
gently ’round the lake.
Don’t stand up and rock the boat,
that's a big mistake.

Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the stream,
until you hit the waterfall—
then you’ll start to scream. Aaiiieee!
