Row row row the boat

Row row row the boat
Gently down the stream
If you see a porcupine
Give him some ice cream

Row row row the boat
Speedily up the river
If you see a panda
Tell him to come hither

Row row row the boat
Slowly down the lane
If you meet a llama
Come back home again

Row row row the boat
Roughly round the bend
If you see a long snake
It might be the end

Row row row the boat
Warily up the lake
If you see a scary mouse
Go back and get that snake

Thank you, Emma. This brought back so many memories of my childhood. My brother and I loved songs, and animals, and boats...

This could catch on mightily with the littlies. Such fun.
And we need fun to defeat the winter blues.

This is playful and robust in its spirit of pastiche. Great work.
