row row row your boat. life is but a dream.

suddenly the song was up in my head, and it caught my attention.
haha.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

the final syllable is very true.
then i went to wikipedia n found some extended versions :

King Friday XIII's version as shown on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood:

Propel, propel, propel your craft,
Unforcefully down the liquid solution.
Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically,
Existence is merely an illusion.

Don Music from Sesame Street:

Drive, drive, drive your car,
Gently down the street.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a treat.

Mr. Bean in Bean variated the lyrics while drunk:

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
If you see a crocodile,
Don't forget to scream.
Argh!

Lt. George in Blackadder Goes Forth

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Belts off, Trousers down,
Isn't life a scream.
HEY!

an extended version[citation needed]:

Row, row, row the boat
Gently down the stream
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 in the bath
If you see a spider
Don't forget to laugh

Row, row, row the boat
Gently as can be
Cause if you're not careful
You'll fall into the sea!

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the lake
Don't stand up and rock the boat
That's a big mistake!

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

Rock, rock, rock your boat
Gently to and fro
Watch out, give a shout,
Into the water you go!
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream. (or Underneath the stream.)
Ha! Ha! Fool'd ya all!
I'm a submarine.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the brook.
If you catch a little fish,
Let it off the hook.
Throw, throw, throw the corpse,
Gently in the grave.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Say goodbye and wave.
