Inline bowline, inline bowline.
Inline bowline, inline bowline.

First, you tie it around your hand.
You showed me so I would understand.
It's the handiest knot.
It wasn't in the book that I bought.

Inline bowline, inline bowline.
Inline bowline, inline bowline.

All who tie a knot at the game.
We were all glad that he came.
We toyed with tyin' the noose.
No one knew he's give it a use.

Inline bowline, inline bowline.
Inline bowline, inline bowline.

Did he think that he was nothing?
Only ending his life was left to try.
Over turned over, I'm left to sing.
Really, why? Really, why?
Really, why? Really, why?

I use it to tie up my canoe (use it to tie up my canoe).
I've used it to tie my shoes (used it to tie my shoes).
It's handy on a whim (handy on a whim).
This knot it tied to him.
Tied to him.
Tied to him.
Tied to him.
