Hey, nice piano playin', Manilla
Thank you, Miss M
Whatcha doin' these days?
Makin' records

Really?
Yes, really
Do you still play piano for people?
Well, depends on who

Hmm, I'm gonna get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Get you and keep you
In my arms evermore
Leave all the others
Waitin' on a faraway shore

Out on the briny
Where the moon's
Big and shiny
Meltin' your heart of stone

I'm gonna get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Bette, I didn't know
You felt that way about me
I don't, I need a piano player
Ah, just like the old days
You're not gonna change keys
On me are yah? Uh huh, oh

I'm gonna get you
(You're never gonna get me)
On a slow boat to China
(Not in a fast or slow boat at any crick)
All to myself alone
(I just get motion sick)

I'm gonna make you mine
(Ha, you'll have to stand in line)
Get you and keep you
In my band evermore
(Now there's a new attack)

Leave all the others on the shore
(For me they'd swim to China)
(To China and back)

Out on the briny
(I wouldn't like the ocean)
Where the moon's big and shiny
(Not even in a rowboat)

Melting your heart of stone
Come on what do yah say?
(You always get your way)

I'm gonna get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone, together
All to myself alone
