Song of the Boatman

  Come Sir, I shall
take you across
safe and easy
in my small boat
across the river

Photobucket

we are all
crossing all the time
going places
and passing stages;
let me help you
on this one, Sir

PhotobucketPhotobucket

a small fee is all I ask
and really it’ll be a
pleasant journey across;

PhotobucketPhotobucket

you can put your
hands in the cool water
while I paddle us across

PhotobucketPhotobucket

I was born here
in the sheds along the shore;
I learned my trade
as soon as I could walk;

Photobucket

all my life has been here
and this is where
I shall be all my days

Photobucket

Photobucket

PhotobucketIt’s all good, Sir, for me
if I can do a good turn
as you pass by;

Photobucket


and so you might
also do me a good turn
at the end
giving me a deserved fee
that I can bring to my
wife and children

Photobucket

Photobucket

Come Sir, I shall
take you across
safe and easy
in my small boat
across the river
