MIDI File

Enter DORO, CARAMEL, JACQUIER, FLOSS and JELLY, rowing in an open boat at back.

Jelly.
  When you’re afloat
In an open boat,
    With nobody there to tow,
  You ply your oar
Till you reach the shore,
    And that is all I know.

    And that is all I know.
  You ply your oar
Till you reach the shore,
Till you reach the shore,
Till you reach the shore,
You ply your oar
Till you reach the shore,
    And that is all I know.

All.
  When you’re afloat
In a sailing boat
    Which is much too big to row,
  You spread your sail
To the quickening gale,
    And that is all we know.

  You spread your sail
To the quickening gale,
To the quickening gale,
To the quickening gale,
You spread your sail

DORO, CARAMEL and JELLY disembark, FLOSS and JACQUIER row off.
