           Let's take a slow boat to China...
      Lately I've been feeling like we need some
                   time away......
           Out on a slow boat to China...
           Drifting in the moonlight
           to some long-forgotten bay......
----------------------------------------------------
           We're working every day to make
                 it all come true...
           But work's not on my mind
                 when that old sky turns blue...
           I dream of you and me out on some
                 sleepy island shore...
           Maybe we can take some time and
                   sail away...
           Leaving all our worries for some
                   rainy day...
           Just maybe we can find the place
                 that we've been looking
                       for......
----------------------------------------------------
           The sun is dancing golden in
                   a sky so blue...
           I close my eyes and then I'm
                 dancing close to you...
           We're dancing naked on a beach
                 beneath a big full moon...
           That's the way a getaway for us
                   should be...
           Forget about the money,
                 come away with me...
           I'll take you to a Paradise
                 you'll not forget
                      too soon!!
----------------------------------------------------
           Let's take a slow boat to China...
      We could use a little time to make some
                 dreams come true...
           Out on a slow boat to China...
           No more interruptions,
           Just the sea,
                         and Me,
                                 and You......

James.....A slow boat ride uses less gas!!!!!
          (not to mention, it takes longer to
           get to where you're going......)
          I'm glad you liked this one....I
           do appreciate your reply!!!!
