Row row row your boat
Row on, Kharon my guide.
Over the waters I go, life done;
Wasted soul, never to come back.
Black cloaked visage pushes me aboard,
Obolas in my mouth.
Akheronian, boat poler
Take me to the other side.

Captain, my captain
A dusty coin your fee.
Pole the boat
That takes my soul down
A dark river.
Into Hades I shall pass,
Never to roam the riverside.
