Row, Row, Row    (1912)

Young Johnny Jones he had a cute little boat
And all the girlies he would take for a float
He had a girlie on the shore
Sweet little peaches by the score
But Johnny was a Weisenheimer, you know
His steady girl was Flo
And every Sunday afternoon
She'd jump in his boat
And they would spoon

And then he'd row, row, row
Way up the river he would row, row, row
A hug he'd give her
Then he'd kiss her now and then
She would tell him when
They'd fool around and fool around
And then they'd kiss again
And then he'd row, row, row
A little further he would go, oh, oh, oh
Then he'd drop both his oars
Take a few more encores
And then he'd row, row, row

Right in his boat he had a cute little seat
And every kiss he stole from Flo was so sweet
And he knew just how to row
He was a rowing Romeo
He knew an island where the trees were so grand
He knew just when to land
Then tales of love he'd tell to Flo
Until it was time for them to go

And then he'd row, row, row
Way up the river he would row, row, row
A hug he'd give her
Then he'd kiss her now and then
She would tell him when
They'd fool around and fool around
And then they'd kiss again
And then he'd row, row, row
A little further he would go, oh, oh, oh
Then we'll drop both our oars
Take a round of applause
And then we'll go, go, go
