Row Your Boat

This is another first for me today participating in the photo prompt Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers.  The photo is shown below.

Could I write about that nursery rhyme and children’s song, ‘Row, row, row your boat’, why yes I could and I guess I will.  Why do people sing these songs and others like ‘Frère Jacques’ and ‘Three Blind Mice’ and for that matter ‘100 Bottles of Beer On the Wall’?  I think the simple answer is that they like singing, but I traveled on a bus one day, it was my senior trip and all the other students on this bus except me and one other guy were members of the Band and Chorus, and being forced to listen to these songs constantly can be annoying.  Row, row, row your boat consists of different verses sung by different groups of people who will jump in at different times, resulting in harmonious sounds as the melody coincides with the different voices.

    1. I agree as on that bus they sang 100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, which is a repetitive song that starts with 100 and it counts down to one. I was so happy when they were finally done with that song, however some a-hole said, ‘One more time’ and they started all over again from 100.

      1. You would have done the same thing after listening to row, row, row your boat and that annoying beer song over and over so many times and the worst part was that I had to take that same bus back home from the trip.
