The guitar riffs in the chorus are digitally lowered an octave (or played on an electric bass, if you prefer). VERSE 1: A N.C. C N.C. If you think that a kiss is all in the lips G N.C. A N.C. Come on, you got it all wrong, man A N.C. C N.C. And if you think that our dance was all in the hips G N.C. A Oh, well, then do the twist A N.C. C N.C. If you take holdin' hands, it's all in the fingers G N.C. A /g Grab hold of the soul where the memory lingers A N.C. C N.C. And make sure to never do it with them singers G N.C. A 'Cause they'll tell everyone in the world /g C G A What he was thinkin' about the girl C G A /g Yeah what he's thinkin' about the girl VERSE 2: Oh, a lot of people get confused they bruise Real easy when it comes to love They start puttin' on their shoes and walkin' out And singin', "Boy, I think I had enough" But just because she makes a big rumpus She don't mean to be mean, or hurt you on purpose, boy Take a tip and do yourself a little service Take a mountain, turn it into a mole Just by playin' a different role Yeah, by playin' a different role CHORUS: A A /g Oh, E The boat, yeah, you know she's rockin' it G And the truth, well, you know there's no stoppin' it A 8v e|--------------------------------------------------------- B|--------------------------------------------------------- G|--------------------------------------------------------- D|-/7--7--5h7p5---/7-/7---5h7-5h7p5----5h7p5----7p5-------- A|--------------7-------------------7--------7------7p5h7-- E|--------------------------------------------------------- yeah E Oh, the boat, yeah, you know she's still rockin' it G And the truth, well, you know there's no stoppin' it A 8v e|-------------------------------------- B|-------------------------------------- G|-------------------------------------- D|-7--5--------------------------------- A|-------7--5--5h7--b5--5b6r5p3-5p3--0-- E|-------------------------------------- VERSE 3: So what, somebody left you in a rut And wants to be the one who's in control But the feelin' that you're under can really make you wonder How the hell she could be so cold So now you're left denying the truth And it's hidden in the wisdom in the back of your tooth You need to spit it out in a telephone booth While you call everyone that you know And ask them, "Where do you think she goes?" Oh yeah, "Where do you suppose she goes?" CHORUS: A A /g Oh, E The truth, well, you know there's no stoppin' it G And the boat, well, you know she's still rockin' it A A N.C.
