SIT DOWN YOU'RE ROCKIN' THE BOAT Album : Guys and Dolls Frank Loesser NICELY-NICELY: 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, "Someone fade me," But the passengers they knew right from wrong For the people all said, "Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat." ENSEMBLE: People all said, "Sit down, sit down you're rockin' the boat." NICELY-NICELY: "And the devil will drag you under By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat; Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down NICELY-NICELY & ENSEMBLE: Sit down you're rocking the boat." NICELY-NICELY: I sailed ENSEMBLE: OOH... NICELY-NICELY: Away on that little boat to Heaven And by some chance found a bottle in my fist, And there I stood, Nicely passin' out the whiskey, But the passengers were bound to resist For the people all said, "Beware!" ENSEMBLE: People all said, "beware, beware!" NICELY-NICELY: You're on a heavenly trip." People all said, "beware!" ENSEMBLE: People all said, "beware!" NICELY-NICELY: "Beware you'll scuttle the ship; And the devil will drag you under By the fancy tie 'round your wicked throat; Sit down, NICELY-NICELY & ENSEMBLE: Sit down, sit down, sit down, Sit down you're rockin' the boat." NICELY-NICELY: And as ENSEMBLE: OOH... NICELY-NICELY: I laughed at those passengers to Heaven Ah, ah, ah, ah! A great big wave came and washed me overboard, And as I sank, and I hollered, "Someone save me," That's the moment I woke up, thank the Lord! ENSEMBLE: Thank the Lord, thank the Lord! NICELY-NICELY: And I said to myself, "Sit down" ENSEMBLE: Said to himself, "Sit down, sit down" NICELY-NICELY: "Sit down you're rocking the boat." Said to myself, "Sit down" ENSEMBLE: Said to himself, "Sit down" NICELY-NICELY: "Sit down you're rocking the boat And the devil will drag you under ENSEMBLE: And the devil will drag you under NICELY-NICELY: With a soul so heavy you'd never float, Sit down NICELY-NICELY & ENSEMBLE: Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down, Sit down you're rockin' the boat- Sit down you're rockin' Rockin' the boat Sit down you're rockin' Rockin' the boat Sit down you're rockin' Rockin' the boat Sit down you're rockin' Rockin' the boat... Sit down, you Sit down you're the boat!"
