I'd like to get you On A Slow Boat To Chi -na,
All to my -self, a -lone.
Get you and keep you in my arms ev -er -more,
Leave all your lov -ers Weep -ing on the far -a -way shore.
Out on the brin -y with a moon big and shin -y,
Melt -ing your heart of stone,
I'd like to get you On A Slow Boat To Chi -na,
All to my -self a -lone.
