Propel, Propel, Propel Thy Craft!!

My friend Elaine emails this to me:

"I read this book called Gently Down the Stream, by a guy in Marin County actually. He says that you can follow the song Row Row Row Your Boat as guidance for how to live more happily. You know -- you have to put effort into something (row), and you have to be gentle with yourself and allow flow (down the stream), and you have to have fun (merrily) and you have to envision a goal (your dream)."

It reminded me of this version of the song which I love, though it may be more difficult to sing in rounds, and it may come to a different conclusion that the guy who wrote the above book.

Propel, Propel, Propel thy craft exactingly up the solution. Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, existence is but an illusion.

I check the song out on Wikipedia. Who knew there was so much to a simple song we learned in elementary school.
