February's song, Row Row Row Your Boat, is the latest in a series of JAMband songs that re-interpret children's nursery rhymes in a funky wordplay-driven way (first came Hey Diddle Diddle, then Partner Dance aka Ring Around the Rosie, then of course Twinkle Twinkle). Kids in my classes LOVE the dance that goes along with this one, and the silliness of all the things we're doing to the boat OTHER than rowing it. And of course they love to freeze at the "where she stops". The words pay homage to the wonderful, trippy, magical, here-and-nowness of life and our journey through it. And check out the really funky groove and underwater guitar solo!

Row Row Row Your Boat
Music and lyrics by Charity Kahn.
Performed by Charity and the JAMband
row row row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life is but a dream
sway sway sway your boat
rock from side to side
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life's a wild ride
spin spin spin your boat
round and round and round she goes
where-ily where-ily where-ily where-ily
where she stops
nobody knows

jump jump jump your boat
'til you almost make it tip
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life is a trip
shake rattle and roll your boat
from the stern to the prow
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life is here and now
spin spin spin your boat
round and round and round she goes
where-ily where-ily where-ily where-ily
where she stops
nobody knows

jam!

drum drum drum your boat
find that river rock beat
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life sure is sweet
dance dance dance your boat
boogie down that river blue
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life's a journey, too
twirl twirl twirl your boat
travelin' where that river flows
swirl swirl swirl your boat
livin' all those highs and lows
spin spin spin your boat
round and round and round she goes
where-ily where-ily where-ily where-ily
where she stops
nobody knows
