On a slow boat to china


by Bette Midler. Buy album CD: Sings The Rosemary Clooney Songbook


Bette: "Hey, nice piano playin', Manilla."
Barry: "Thank you, Miss M."
Better: "Whatcha doin' these days?"
Barry: "Makin' records."
Bette: "Really?"
Barry: "Yes, really."
Bette: "Do you still play piano for people?"
Barry: "Well, depends on who."

Bette:
Hmmm, I'm gonna get you
on a slow boat to China,
All to myself alone;
Get you and keep you in my arms evermore;
Leave all the others
waitin' on a faraway shore

Bette & Barry:
Out on the briny
where the moon's big and shiny
melting your heart of stone
I'm gonna get you
on a slow boat to China,
all to myself alone.

Barry:"Bette, I didn't know you felt that way about me."
Bette:"I don't, I need a piano player."
Barry:"Ahh, just like the old days!"
Bette:"You're not gonna change keys on me are yah?"
Barry: "Uh-huh."
Bette: "Ohhhh!"

Bette & Barry:
I'm gonna get you
(you're never gonna get me)
On a slow boat to china
(not in a fast or slow boat at any crick)
All to myself alone
(I just get motion sick)
I'm gonna make you mine
(Ha, you'll have to stand in line!)
Get you and keep you in my band evermore
(now there's a new attack)
leave all the others on the shore
(For me they'd swim to China, to China and back)

Out on the briny
(I wouldn't like the ocean)
Where the moon's big and shiny
(not even in a rowboat)
melting your heart of stone, come on what do yah say?
(Ha, you always get your way)
I'm gonna get you
on a slow boat to China,
all to myself alone, to-ge-ther
All to myself alone
