On A Slow Boat To China
Kay Kyser
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China,
All to my self alone.
Get you to keep you in my arms evermore,
Leave all your lovers (lovelies)
Weeping on the faraway shore.
Out on the briny
With the moon big and shinny,
Melting your heart of stone.
I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China,
All to my self alone.
