Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Messing About on the River
Subject: RE: messing about on the river
Thanks for refreshing this - as someone who has spent years messing abount on various rivers and canals - I keep meaning to learn it - I can already play it on guitar. BTW I think the ### in verse 3 is "yachts" and Ratty (in The Wind in the Willows) actually said "`Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolute nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in BOATS".
