Treasure Island

Elke Nigro

(Hamburg, Germany)

Row, Row, Row Your Boat


Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the stream,
without a map, without a guide,
we never saw the waterfall
our boat rushed forward in its fall,

the printing press works overnight,
printing money out of sight,

Our great country heaves and sighs,
a slumbering giant slowly dies,

Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the stream,
waking up and wondering why
our big giant only sighs,
when we tell him all our lies.
