Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Row, row, row the boat,
Gently down the stream.
If you see a waterfall,
Don't forget to scream.

Row, row, row the boat,
Gently down the river.
If you see a polar bear,
Don't forget to shiver.

Row, row, row the boat,
Gently to the shore.
If you see a lion,
Don't forget to roar.

Row, row, row the boat,
Gently down the stream.
Throw your teachers overboard,
And listen to them scream!
