Lyrics below:
LYRICS Row row row your boat Gently up the Cam Linking the city to the Wash Where it first began
Row row row your boat Gliding with your sail Major route for goods to come Until the birth of rail
Row row row your boat To the Bridge of Magdalene Home in time for tea as long As you stop your dawdling.
