Song: “My Big Green Boat” (tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)

I love to row in my big green boat, (Pretend to row)
Big green boat, big green boat.
I love to row in my big green boat
Out on the deep blue sea.

My big green boat has two white sails, (Raise arms above head and wave gently)
Two white sails, two white sails.
My big green boat has two white sails,
Out on the deep blue sea.

So come for a row in my big green boat, (Pretend to row)
My big green boat, my big green boat.
So come for a row in my big green boat,
Out on the deep blue sea.
