Well, there's no verse to this song
'Cause I don't want to wait a moment too long
To say that I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All myself alone
To get you to keep you in my arms evermore
Leave all your lovers weeping on the far-away shore
Well out on the briny with a moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Well, I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
Well, I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
On a real slow boat
On a slow slow boat to China
On An Evening In Roma (Sott'er Celo De Roma)
Como e` bella ce` la luna brille e` strette
Strette como e` tutta bella a passeggiare
Sotto il cielo di Roma
Down each avenue or via, street or strata
You can see 'em disappearing two by two
On an evening in Roma
Do they take 'em for espresso?
Yeah, I guess so
On each lover's arm a girl I wish I knew
On an evening in Roma
Though there's grinning and mandolining in sunny Italy
The beginning has just begun when the sun goes down
So, please, meet me in the plaza near your casa
I am only one and that's one too few
On an evening in Roma
Don't know what the country's coming to
But in Rome do as the Romans do
Will you on an evening in Roma?
Como e` bella ce` la luna brille e` strette
Strette como e` tutta bella a passeggiare
Sotto il cielo di Roma
Don't know what the country's coming to
But in Rome do as the Romans do
Will you on an evening in Roma?
Sott'er celo de Roma
On an evening in Roma
