On A Slow Boat To China
Frank Loesser, 1947

Well there's no verse to this song
'Cause I don't want to wait a moment too long
To say that I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All myself alone
To get you to keep you in my arms evermore
Leave all your lovers weeping on the far-away shore

Well out on the briny with a moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Well I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

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