THE WILD ROWER

Iíve been a wild rower for many a year
And rushed up the slide while my coach shed a tear
But now I am focused with strength in my core
And I never will play the wild rower no more

And itís hands then body (donít bend those legs)
Gaining length off backstops
Iíll not play the wild rower
No nay never no more

I went to a boat club I used to frequent
And I told the club captain my rigger was bent
I asked for the stroke seat, he answered me nay,
Saying spanners like you I can get any day

And itís hands then body (donít bend those legs)
Gaining length off backstops
Iíll not play the wild rower
No nay never no more

Then I sat on the erg with my ratio right
And the club captainís eyes opened wide with delight
We have seats free for Henley, Iíll bin all the rest
And the words that I told you were only in jest

And itís hands then body (donít bend those legs)
Gaining length off backstops
Iíll not play the wild rower
No nay never no more

Iíll go back to my crew and Iíll reach out with pride
And Iím sure to impress them with time on the slide
And then theyíll just follow, I wonít row at four,
And I never will play the wild rower no more
And itís hands then body (donít bend those legs)
Gaining length off backstops
Iíll not play the wild rower
No nay never no more

And itís hands then body (donít bend those legs)
Gaining length off backstops
Iíll not play the wild rower
No nay never no more
