Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat
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,
"Some one fade me,"
But the passengers they knew right from wrong.
For the people all said,
"Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat."
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 rockin' the boat."

I sailed away on that little boat to heaven, Ooh,
And by some chance found a bottle in my fist, Ooh.
And there I stood,
Nicely passing out the whiskey,
But the passengers were bound to resist. Ooh.
For the people all said, People all said,
"Beware, you're on a heavenly trip." "Beware, beware"
People all said, People all said,
"Beware, you'll scuttle the ship" "Beware."
And the devil will drag you under, Sit down, sit
By the fancy tie 'round your wicked throat,
"Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down "Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat" Sit down you're rockin' the boat"

Down
And as I laughed at those passengers to heaven, Ooh.
Ha ha ha!
A great big wave came and washed me overboard, Ooh
And as I sank,
And I hollered,
"Someone save me"
That's the moment I woke up, Ooh
Thank the Lord! Thank the Lord, thank the Lord!
And I said to myself, Said to myself,
"Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat." "Sit down, sit down"
Said to myself, Said to myself,
"Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat." "Sit down"
And the devil will drag you under, And 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 you're rockin',
Sit down you're rockin'
Sit down you're rockin' the boat,
Sit down you're rockin',
Sit down you're rockin'
Sit down you're rockin' the boat,
Sit down! Sit down, you're rockin' the boat!
