Eton Boating Song

Eton College has a number of school songs which are sung at the end of year concert and on other important occasions throughout the school year.

The boating song is the most famous and is often to be heard on football terraces. It is also played during the famous procession of boats.

Jolly boating weather And a hay harvest breeze, Blade on the feather, Wind off the trees, Swing, swing together With your backs between your knees, Swing, swing together With you backs between your knees.

So runs the first verse of many.
