In this interesting video, Youtuber Prince EA gives the nursery rhyme Row Row Row Your Boat a different, and possibly shocking, meaning.

Let's break it down right here:

Row, row, row, - You have to keep rowing, you have to keep moving.

YOUR boat - You must row your own boat. It is no one else's but yours. You may neither let others row your boat for you or row other people's boat for them. 

Gently down the stream - You must do it gently. Not angrily, anxiously or forcefully. Just go with the flow of life.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily - You shouldn't do your journey with just seriousness. Smile. You have to enjoy the trip too. Reduce your stress and increase your optimism level.

Life is but a dream - This is just a passing dream, but you must do yourself a favor and wake up to the truth. You are powerful.
