Row, Row, Row, Your Boat
Row row row your boat, gently down the stream
Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream.
Row row row your boat, gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream! AHHHH!
Row row row your boat, gently to the shore
If you see a lion, don’t forget to ROAR!!!!!
