sylvia rowing, circa 1960
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.
Popular American children's song, 1852.
A midnight valium for a good night's sleep / "you will ride life straight to perfect laughter, it's the only good fight there is". Roll the Dice, C. Bukowski
