Row the boat lightly, love, over the sea,
Daily and nightly I'll wander with thee;
On its fair bosom contented I'll roam,
Evermore, dearest, to dwell in thy home.
Bow the boat lightly, etc.

Gay is the life of a fisherman's bride,
Though the wind fretteth the foam in Its tide;
What, tho' the storm doth encompass the sea,
Grasping her treasure-what careth she?
Row the boat lightly, etc.

The moon is now hidden behind yonder cloud.
Our bark rides the waves and tempest so proud;
Pull hard, my boys, your journey's most o'er,
For yonder bright light is our home by the shore.
Row the boat lightly, etc.
