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

    Thankyou! nice instrumental version.
    Is it okay for me to use it on my website for a local children’s performance group if I give credit to your website?

    Have currently added it, but if you would prefer I didn’t then I will remove it asap.
    Many thanks
