On A Slow Boat To China by Bette Midler And Barry Manilow

[Bette:] “Hey, nice piano playin’, Manilla.” [Barry:] “Thank you, Miss M.” [Bette:] “Whatcha doin’ these days?” [Barry:] “Makin‘ records.” [Bette:] “Really?” [Barry:] “Yes, really.” [Bette:] “Do you still play piano for people?” [Barry:] “Well, depends on who.”

[Bette:] Hmmm, 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.

[Bette & Barry:] Out on the briny where the moon’s big and shiny, melting your heart of stone. I’m gonna get you on a slow boat to China, all to myself alone.

[Barry:] “Bette, I didn’t know you felt that way about me.” [Bette:] “I don’t. I need a piano player.” [Barry:] “Ahh, just like the old days!” [Bette:] “You’re not gonna change keys on me, are ya?” [Barry:] “Unh Huh.” [Bette:] “Ohhh!”

[Bette:] I’m gonna get you [Barry:] You’re never gonna get me. [Bette:] on a slow boat to China [Barry:] Not in a fast or slow boat to any crick. [Bette:] all to myself alone; [Barry:] I just get motion sick [Bette:] I’m gonna make you mine. [Barry:] Ha, you’ll have to stand in line. [Bette:] Get you and keep you in my band evermore; [Barry:] Now there’s a new attack. [Bette:] Leave all the others on the shore. [Barry:] For me they’d swim to China, to China and back.

[Bette:] Out on the briny [Barry:] I wouldn’t like the ocean, [Bette:] where the moon’s big and shiny, [Barry:] not even in a rowboat. [Bette:] melting your heart of stone. Come on, what do you say? [Barry:] Ha ha, you always get your way. [Bette & Barry:] I’m gonna get you on a slow boat to China, all to myself alone, to-ge-ther. All to myself alone.
