Alex Lyr Req: Messing About on the River (Josh MacRae) (36) RE: Lyrics: Messin' about on the river 21 Aug 97

You are correct about the song being English - it was one of those awful "pop" recordings that we got on BBC radio before rock 'n' roll and the Beatles came along. The rhythm accompaniment sounded like rowing. I don't have the words, but if you are interested, there was an underground parody "Rugby Song" which had such lyrics as "Watching the stunts of the c**nts in their punts, just f***ing about on the river".
