There's No Boat
Like a Rowboat
 
 
Oh, there's no boat like a rowboat
for row, row romancin' love . . . 
 
Hearts will skip an' they'll miss 
as we kiss in the dark 
Oh what love we can make 
on a lake in the park
 
It's an ocean of devotion 
a floating dream for two . . .
 
Oh, I keep hopin' that 
the oars will stray 
so we could drift forever 
and a day!
 
'Cause, there's no boat like a rowboat
it's row, row rosy 
for row, row romance
in a row, row, rowboat with you! 
 
[ instrumental break ]
 
( Don't wanna steam boat! )
that's not my dreamboat 
( Don't wanna sail boat! )
or a whale boat!
( Don't wanna tug boat, a chug-a-lug boat! )
or an ocean liner 
on it's way to China! 
 
Oh, there's no boat like a rowboat
for row, row romancin' love . . . 
 
[ instrumental break ]
 
It's an ocean of devotion 
a floating dream for two . . .
 
[ instrumental break ]
 
'Cause, there's no boat like a rowboat
in a row, row rowboat with you! 
 
[ instrumental break ]
 
( l could skip an' they'll miss 
as we kiss in the dark )
Oh what love we can make 
in the lake in the park
 
( It's an ocean of devotion 
a floating dream for two . . . )
 
Oh, I keep hoping that 
the oars will stray 
so we could drift forever 
and a day!
 
'Cause, there's no boat like a rowboat
it's row, row rosy 
for row, row romance
in a row, row, rowboat with you!
