THE THOUSAND ISLANDS SONG (OH! FLORENCE) From the Broadway Revue "Angel In The Wings" (1947) (Bob Hilliard / Carl Sigman) Arthur Godfrey (with The Too Fat Trio) - 1948 Louis Prima - 1948 Johnny Mercer - 1948 Also recorded by: The Korn Kobblers (Row, row, row your boat, up the river St. Lawrence) (Hollering, hollering, hollering, hollering) Hollering for Florence (Row your boat) I left the one I love on one of the Thousand Islands (Row, row your boat) But unfortunately I can't remember which one So I row, row, row, row up the river St. Lawrence And I'm hollerin' Florence, oh! where can you be? (Where, oh, where, where, oh, where can she be?) I wouldn't be so lost up here on the Thousand Islands (Row, row, your boat) If we only had met down on the Isle of Capri Now I just can't find the place you marked on the post card Call the Navy and Coast Guard Oh! where, where can you be? (Where, oh, where, where, oh, where can she be?) Mustn't take a nap, gotta watch the map That was Island seven-ninety-three Row from shore to shore, knock on every door How many Thousand Islands can there be? I better find you soon 'cause I see a thousand row boats (Row, row your boat) And the fellers inside look mighty lonesome to me When they row, row, row, row up the River St. Lawrence They're all hollerin' "Florence, oh! where can you be?" (Row, row, your boat up the River St. Lawrence Hollering, hollering, hollering, hollering, hollering for Florence) I better find you soon 'cause I see a thousand row boats (Row, row your boat) And the fellers inside look mighty lonesome to me When they row, row, row, row up the River St. Lawrence They're all hollerin' "Florence, oh! where can you be?" (Row, row, your boat) Hey Florence (Row, row your boat) Hey Florence! Hey Florence! Hey Florence! Hey Flowie! You're harder to find than Chloe! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2011)
