Thread Name: Origins of Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Subject: RE: Origins of Row, Row, Row Your Boat
I respect all the opinions I've read here. But, if you really want to know. The very first time that the words " Row, Row, Row, your boat", were uttered, was during the early exploration of the Upper Niagra River By two european explorers. While rowing gently down the stream, Herman, who was in the bow, suddenly stood up when he thought the water vanished ahead of them. Then as he franticly spun the boat around, he shouted to his companion, Horus, Who owned the boat, "ROW, ROW, ROW, YOUR BOAT" *BG* from *BD*
