Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat
I dreamed last night
I was on the boat to heaven
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

And 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
Cause the devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapels of your checkered coat
Sit down Sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat
Ooh Ooh Ooh (scat)
Ooh Ooh Ooh

As I sailed
With those passengers to heaven
By some chance
I found a bottle in my fist
And there I stood
Nicely passing out the whiskey
But the passengers were bound to resist

And 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
Cause the devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapels of your checkered coat
Sit down Sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat
Ooh Ooh Ooh
Ooh Ooh Ooh

As we sail
On that tiny boat to heaven
Great big wave
Came and washed me over board
And as I sank
Oh 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 rockin' the boat
I said to myself sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat
Cause the devil will drag you under
By the sharp lapels of your checkered coat
Sit down Sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat
Sit down (Sit down) Sit down (Sit down)
Sit down Sit down you're rockin' the boat
