Thank you to MalreDeszik for the incredibly creative samples… they pushed me to expand my creativity and I appreciate that.

I kept getting the children’s song “Row Row Row Your Boat” stuck in my head while working on this… especially the line “life is but a dream.” And so, I changed the tune to work and changed the lyrics. Thank you to Eliphalet Oram Lyte who wrote “Row Row Row Your Boat in 1881 (it’s public domain now, of course).

I hope you dig this mix.

Breathe, breathe, breathe in deep
With a steady stream
Peacefully, peacefully
Life is but a dream

Fall, fall, fall asleep
Gentle moonbeam
Tranquilly, tranquilly,
Life is but a dream

Fly, fly, fly above
Through the evergreens
Freely soar, freely soar
Life is but a dream

Wake, wake, wake yourself
From your lucid dream
Full of awe, full of awe
Life’s a waking dream

Breathe, breathe, breathe in deep
As the sun gleams
Wide awake, wide awake
Life is but a dream
