Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

We were forty miles from Albany forget it I never shall
what a terrible storm we had one night on the E'ri'e canal

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we'll get a drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo".

The barge was full of barley and the crew was full of rye,
the Captain he looked down on me with a ricked wicked eye.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

Well the Captain he stood up on the deck with a spy glass in his hand,
and the fog was so god darn thick that he couldn't spy the land.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo, 'till we get to Buffalo.

Now two days out from Syracuse the vessel struck a shoal,
we liked all been floundered on a chuckalauka coal.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

The cook she was a grand ole gal. She wore a ragged dress.
We hoisted her upon the pole as a signal of distress.

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo.

Now the Captain he got married, the cook she went to jail,
and I'm the only son of a 'sea cook' left to tell the tale".

Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we'll get a drink 'till we get to Buffalo,
'till we get to Buffalo...
Oh the E'ri'e was arising and the gin was getting low,
and I scarcely think we're gonna get a little drink 'till we get to city of Buffalo.
Till we get to Buffalo".
