OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left in alamo style, right to partner, balance
Box the gnat, wrong way go right and left grand
Wrong way round that ring till you meet and box the gnat
Dosado that same girl and to the corner go
Allemande left that corner then a grand old right & left
Meet that lady, promenade her home
I'd like to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Head 2 couples cross trail thru go round 1
Make a line, go forward, come back
Square thru my friends, count to 4 you know
Trade by, right & left thru and turn 'em Joe
Swing thru you 2, boys trade and swing
Swing that lady, promenade her home

(I'd Like To Get You On A) Slow Boat To China
 
 

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Get you and keep you
In my arms ever more
Leave all your lovers
Weepin' on a far away shore

Out on the briny
With the moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All by myself alone

I'd love to get ya
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
A twist in the rudder
And a rip in the sails
Drifting and dreamin'
Honey throw the compass over the rail

Out on the ocean
Far from all the commotion
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Lyrics by Frank Loesser.
Recorded by Kay Kyser; Freddy Martin; Bing Crosby; many others.
