Song title: Sea cruise

(Smith, Vincent) by Frankie Ford (Ace 554), 1958

Sea cruise

Old man rhythm is in my shoes
No use t’sittin’ and a’singin’ the blues
So be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin’ baby won’t ya join me please
I don’t like beggin’ but I’m on bended knee

I got to get t’rockin get my hat off the rack
I got to boogie woogie like a knife in the back
So be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

I got to get t’movin’ baby I ain’t lyin’
My heart is beatin’ rhythm and it’s right on time
So be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?

Feel like jumpin’ baby won’t ya join me please
I don’t like beggin’ but I’m on bended knee

Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Oo-ee, oo-ee baby
Won’t ya let me take you on a sea cruise?
