Who ever came up with these lyrics was an enlightened genius, capturing some deep insights and incorporating them into a kids nursery rhyme. What a great idea. I loved this rhyme as a child. Looking at it now, it’s a bit like a mantra for a good life 😉

Row, row, row your boat (your body is your boat),
Gently down the stream (life is the stream).
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, (be cheerful)
Life is but a dream. (because it’s all just a dream)
