On a Slow Boat to China

I was young when I set out
I can hardly remember
Oh the tales that I could tell you
If I only could remember
And the fog it is drumming
And the new world is coming
Oh this song I will be humming
When the words wont come out
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
In the sea, when we get there
We will see what will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
We will see when we get there
What will be
Now I’m old I am weathered
my beard is long and white
I have seen many crawling winters
on this sleepy ark
still we go for our fathers
and we go for the lost
still we go ever on
into the common dark
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
In the sea, when we get there
We will see what will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
We will see when we get there
What will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
On a slow boat to China
I will be, I will be
In the sea, when we get there
