Row, Row

Row, Row

Row! row! homeward we steer,
Twilight falls o'er us,
Hark! hark! music is near,
Friends glide before us,
Song lightens our labor,
Sing as onward we go,
Keep each with his neighbor
Time as we flow.

Chorus.—Row! row! homeward we go,
Twilight falls o'er us,
Row! row! sing as we flow,
Day flies before us.

Row! row! sing as we go,
Nature rejoices;
Hark! how the hills as we flow
Echo our voices;
Still o'er the dark waters
Far away we must roam,
Ere Italy's daughters
Welcome us home.

Chorus.—Row! row, &c.

Row! row! see in the west
Lights dimly burning,
Friends in yon harbor of rest
Wait our returning;
See now they burn clearer,—
Keep time with the oar;
Now, now we are nearer
That happy shore.

Chorus.—Row! row, &c.

Home, home, daylight is o'er,
Friends stand before us;
Yet ere our boat touch the shore,
Once more the chorus.

Chorus.—Row! row, &c.
