Review

October, 29th 2016
Frank Loesser, whose name is consonant with the word loser, made blues. Recording of his concert you can see in the attached video. Then the melody turns into a twist, to change after an active chorus, again going to the blues. Songs from the two genres have become very rare since the beginning of 2000, so we can say that the listener now hears the precious pearl of the music world. Particularly pleased that the chorus is made by dozens of voices, thus, arrangement looks cute. Reference: Read more about "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat", the song written by Frank Loesser and published in 1950

Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat Song Lyrics


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"
The 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 rocking 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' 'round the whiskey
But the passengers were bound to resist
For the people all said
"Beware you're on a heavenly trip"
The 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 blew me overboard
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 rocking the boat"
Said to myself
"Sit down, sit down you're rocking the boat
For 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' the boat
Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat
Sit down, sit down
Please be seated
