Lightly Row (Hanschen klein) Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This traditional German folk tune, called 'Little Hans' dating from the 19th century. Here is a translation of the German words:
Little Hans went alone out into the wide world. Staff and hat suit him well. He is in good spirits. But his mother cries so much, for she no longer has little Hans. Look! the child changes his mind and returns quickly home.

The English words bear no relation to the German ones, but describe rowing in a boat.

Lightly row, lightly row, O'er the glassy waves we go! Smoothly glide, smoothly glide, On the silent tide. Let the winds and waters be Mingled with our childish glee. Sing and float, sing and float In our little boat!
