Perry Como - "There's No Boat Like A Rowboat" lyrics

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!
