Lyrics

Michael, row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah.
Michael, row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah.
Sister, help to trim the sails,
Hallelujah.
Sister, help to trim the sails,
Hallelujah.

River Jordan's deep and wide,
Hallelujah.
Milk and honey on the other side,
Hallelujah.

River Jordan's chilly and cold,
Hallelujah.
Chills the body, but warms the soul,
Hallelujah.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Michael Row Your Boat Ashore

"Michael, Row Your Boat Ashore" also known as "Michael, Row the Boat Ashore" is an African-American spiritual with strong historical connections.

It was first noted during an incident in the American Civil War in 1863; when, at St. Helena Island, South Carolina, former slaves whose owners had left the island prior to the arrival of the Union navy, sang the song while rowing across the water.

Witnessed by Charles Pickard Ware, a Harvard graduate and an abolitionist, he recorded the song in music notation. Consequently, the song was first published in the collection of spirituals "Slave Songs of the United States" in 1867.

This song has been printed from the BusSongs.com website.
