He had girlies on the shore, Sweet little peaches by the score- But master Johnny was a wis'un, 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. 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. ***** ALTERNATE VERSION: ROW, ROW, ROW (William Jerome /James V.
