Please don't you rock my boat,
Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin' anyhow
Please don't you rock my boat, no!
Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin'

I'm tellin' you that, oh, oo-er!
I like it like-a this. Can you hear?
And you should know, ooh-oh! 
When I like it-a like-a this
I'm-a really it, ooh-yeah!
You satis - satis - satisfy my soul mornin' time,
Evenin', oh-oh! 
Fy my soul!

Yes, I been a-tellin' you,
Make me the sweetest case
Happy inside all the time
Oh, can't you see what you've done for me? 

You make me feel like, when we bend a new corner,
We feel like sweepstake winner, yeah!
When we bend a new corner,
We feel like sweepstake winner
And I said, oh! Ooh-oh! I like it-a like-a this

Make me love you in the mornin' time, yeah
If ever I treated you bad, make it up to me one time
Cause I'm happy inside all the time

One thing you got to do
Is when-a we holdin' 'ands together
You've got to know that we love-a - love eachother, yeah!

Oh, darlin', darlin', I'm callin', callin'!
Satisfy my soul - satisfy my soul!

All in the same boat 
Rockin on the same rock
Got to get together, lovin' eachother
And can't you see what I've got for you, yeah

I'm happy - happy - happy - happy - happy
And not even time to be blue, yeah
