Row, Boys!
Language: English 
The sun sinks in the sea
and weary men are we;
the live long day
have we plied the oar
far far away
in the misty shore.
Row, row boys!

Beloved eyes so bright
gaze through the fading light
bless be the moon that rises free
over the wide and silvered sea.
Row, row boys!

A breeze to its tune
the waves will be dancing soon;
our bonny bark rides on the rising sea.
Hoist the sail and away go we!
Row, row boys!
