Walter Bobbie And Ensemble – "Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat" lyrics

We will now hear testimony from a brother Nicely Nicely Johnson
Brother Nicely Nicely Johnson, come on get up you
Well it happened to be kinda funny like a dream
[Incomprehensible] a dream, yeah, tell us in your own words

I dreamed last night I got on the boat to Heaven
And by some chance I had brought my dice along
And there I stood and I hollered, "Someone fade me"
But the passengers, they knew right from wrong

For the people all said sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat
People all said, sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat

And the Devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat

I sailed away on that little boat to Heaven
And by some chance found a bottle in my fist
And there I stood, nicely passin' out the whisky
But the passengers were bound to resist

For the people all said beware
You're on a heavenly trip
People all said beware
Beware, you'll scuttle the ship

And the Devil will drag you under
By the fancy tie 'round your wicked throat
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

And as I laughed at those passengers to Heaven
A great big wave came and washed me over board
And as I sank and I hollered, "Someone save me!"
That's the moment I woke up, thank the Lord

And I said to myself, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat
Said to myself sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

And the Devil will drag you under
With a soul so heavy you'd never float
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

Sit down, you're rockin', rockin' the boat
Sit down, you're rockin', rockin' the boat
Sit down, you're rockin', rockin' the boat
...
