Song and rhyme words

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 (Aaagh!)

There are lots of variations. Try one of the following:

Gently down the stream, if you see a crocodile don’t forget to scream

Gently down the river, if you see a polar bear don’t forget to shiver

Gently to the shore, if you see a lion don’t forget to roar

Gently down the lake, if you hear a hissing sound it’s probably a snake

Gently in the bath, if you see a spider don’t forget to laugh (tickle)

Gently though the mist, if you see a baby don’t forget to kiss
