Lyrics

I’d love to get you
on a slow boat to China
all to myself alone

Mmm, get you and keep you
in my arms evermore
leave all your
lovers weeping
on the far away shore

Out on the briny
with the moon big and shiny
melting your heart of stone

I’d love to get you
on a slow boat to China
all to myself alone

Do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do-do

I’d love to get you
on a slow boat to China
all to myself alone

Mmm, get you and keep you
in my arms evermore
leave all your
lovers weeping
on the far away shore

Out on the briny
with the moon big and shiny
melting your heart of stone

Oh… I’d love to get you
on a slow boat to China
all to myself alone

Do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do-do
