There is no verse
To this song
'Cause I don't wanna wait a moment too long
To say that I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Get you and keep you
In my arms ever more
Leave all your lovers
Weepin' on a faraway shore

Out on the briny
With that moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Honey, I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself
Alone

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
A twist in the rudder
And a rip in the sail
Drifting and dreaming
Throw the compass over the rail

Out on the ocean
Far from all the commotion
Melting your heart, of stone
I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself
There's nobody else
Yes, all to myself alone
