The Binder Specialists in Kiel playing I Row The Boat a song written a few years earlier before I quit Blue Rodeo. Some lyrics just come and you have no explanation, absolutely no idea what this is about.

I row the boat, I row the boat

I break my back for the dollar bill note

Why do I row the boat, Why do I row the boat?

Is the dollar bill note worth cutting your own throat?

I row the boat, I make the captain famous

He says he’s going to pay me when he gets back from Vegas

I know the shortcuts, the Captain knows I know the shortcuts

But when I open my mouth the Captain tells me to shut up

TV crews are waiting, their waiting at the dock

To see the famous Captain & hear his famous talk

All about the shortcuts that he says he knows

All about the speed that the boat does row

But I row the boat, I row the boat

I break my back for the dollar bill note

Why do I row the boat? Why do I row the boat?

Is the dollar bill note worth cutting your own throat

No the dollar bill note ain’t worth cutting your own throat
