On A Slow Boat To China Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Somewhere Over China

On A Slow Boat To China
By: Frank Loesser
1948
To Spike Jones and the City Slickers and Darlene Vare
-- Spoken:
"And now from the Grand Ballroom"
"The S.S. ???? proudly presents our boy singer: Jimmy Boofey"
"Take it away Jim"

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Get you and keep you
In my arms ever more
Leave all your lovers
Weepin' on a far away shore (waiter!)

Out on the briny
With the moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All by myself alone

-- Spoken:
"Who's steering the boat?"
"Who's steering this boat?"
"Waiter!"
"May I get a drink around here, now uh...?"
"You ever been on a cruise?"
"Neither have I!"

(instrumental)

"...isn't that a good one?"
"Yes, can I see you later, You bet!"
"Excuse me, I have to go back to the bandstand now"

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
A twist in the rudder
And a rip in the sails
Driftin' and dreamin'
Honey throw the compass over the rail

Out on the ocean
Far from all the commotion
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All by myself alone

(I have to go now)
(Wait! Don't leave!)
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

-- Spoken:
"You know our last set is at two"
"I get off after that"
"What you doin'?"
"Would you like to take a stroll around the upper deck?"
"See you then"
"Maybe, oo-hoo"

This album is dedicated to Bill Williams, my old boss, who told me a
long time ago that he knew that I knew that I could. Love, J.B.
