The modern-day tune was adopted two years later. Throughout years of circulation, additional and alternate verses were to added the rhyme, which is meant to be sung as a round in three parts.Download a printable coloring page for Row, Row, Row Your Boat (just click print):http://mothergooseclub.com/rhymes.php?cat=action&id=182Listen to a narration of Row, Row, Row Your Boat:http://mothergooseclub.com/rhymes.php?cat=action&id=182"Row, Row, Row Your Boat" lyrics:Row, row, row your boatGently down the stream.Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,Life is but a dream.Additional versions:Version 1Row, row, row your boatGently down the stream.Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,Life is but a dream.(Mother Goose Club Version)Version 2Row, row, row your boatgently down the stream,All that's past is gone, you know—The future's but a dream.Source: Murrill, Mountain and stream songs of the Virginias (1918)Version 3Hoe, hoe, hoe your row,Steadily every day;Merrily, merrily, cheerily, cheerily;Half our work is play.Can, can all we can;Everything comes our way;Merrily, merrily, cheerily, cheerily;Half our work is play.Sew, sew, all you can;Everything comes our way;Merrily, merrily, cheerily, cheerily,Half our work is play.Raise, raise, raise a pig,Make him into pork;Show the other boys and girlsWe can do the work.Raise, raise, raise a chickTo get an egg or two;Merrily, merrily, cheerily, cheerily,Save the feathers, too.Source: University of Idaho Extension Bulletin (1912)
