Messing About in Boats Lyrics

RATTY:
Messing about in boats, keeping my world afloat,
Making the very most of our excursion.
Passing the time of day, seeing what comes our way,
Drifting along with minimal exertion.

CHORUS ALL:
Nothing, nothing, half as much worth doing,
Living a life on the river,
Messing about in boats!

MOLE:
Having a lovely time, watching the world go by.
RATTY:
Leaving our cares behind us on our journey.
Singing a happy tune, stopping for lunch at noon.
BOTH:
Stealing a little snooze before returning!

CHORUS ALL:
Nothing, nothing, half as much worth doing,
Living a life on the river,
Messing about in boats!

RATTY:
Steering a course upstream, lost in our thoughts and dreams,
BOTH:
Looking towards those easy days of summer.
MOLE:
Taking it nice and slow,
RATTY:
Waving the odd ‘hello’,
BOTH:
This is the life I know, and there’s no other!

CHORUS ALL:
Nothing, nothing - half as much worth doing,
Living a life on the river,
Messing about in boats,
RATTY:
Messing about in boats,
MOLE:
Messing about in boats,
BOTH:
Messing about in boats!
