Flannel Friday: Row, Row, Row Your Boat

"Okay, you guys, I need your help. Do you know the song "Row, row, row your boat"? Great. Let's sing it together:

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

Row, row r- Wait? You guys don't know the next verse? Oh, well, it goes like this

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

I didn't hear you guys scream. You have to really let it out. Okay, on 1...2...3...


And there's more

Row, row, row you boat
Gently down the creek
If you see a mouse,
He'll surely go squeak, squeak!

Okay, last verse. Get ready.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently towards the shore,
If you see a lion,
Give him your best ROAR!

Great job you guys! Give yourselves a round of applause."

There are a lot of possibilities with this song and water words, make up your own verses and play along!

brook...look (If you see an elephant, take a second look)
wave...cave (Right around the corner, a bear lives in that cave)
bend... end

Flannel Friday is being hosted by Erin today, for more info on Flannel Friday: The Movement, check out the official website.


  1. Awesome flannel, Lucy! Love the colors.

  2. I have never liked the version with the alligator, but now that I'm singing it in my head with your other verses and seeing this great flannel....I think I have a change of heart. Very nice!

    1. I wasn't crazy about it the first time I heard it either. I think it takes more than one verse of the non-traditional song to work. I'm glad I could help change your mind!

  3. Love, love, love your stream! Actually I love all your pieces! Awesome job!

  4. This is too cute! I love how you did the water. I will have to use that!

  5. Thanks you guys, I'm always looking for ways to use flannel scraps and the stream and the lion's mane were perfect for that!

  6. I never knew that there were other verses. Definitely picking this one up!

  7. I like the textures of your pieces. They pop right off the board (in a good way).

  8. Row row row your boat gently down the stream, Haha tricked you I'm a submarine!!
    Love your variations :)
