musician The Perfect Song

Row Row Row Your Boat

Gently Down the Stream

Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily

Life is But a Dream

I recall learning the perfect song when I was 5 years old. Most people I have known also knew the song and were delighted to sing it together in a variety of circumstances. The song is a round that can be sung by up to 4 singers or groups simultaneously.

If you are familiar with Buddhist philosophy, you will recognize a perfect statement of the fundamental truth.
Life is but a dream. You are riding in a boat, down the stream of life. You may as well enjoy the trip, so row merrily, merrily, merrily.
