On The Barge

Original version (4:42)

Will you come to the barge tonight ?
There’s a band and electric lights
On the barge,
On the barge.
It is down on the Tiber moored.
You’ll be the prettiest girl for sure
On the barge,
On the barge.

The world will stop revolving
To watch you and I
Spinning around and around,
Lost in the glorious sound.
Oh please say you’ll come dance with me.
The barge is the one place…

…To be on a Friday night,
There is hardly ever a fight
On the barge,
On the barge.
I’m a gentleman, can’t you tell ?
I will keep my hands to myself
On the barge,
On the barge.

The birds will stop their singing
To watch you and I
Floating up into the sky,
Leaving the city behind.
Oh please say you’ll come dance with me, baby.
Tonight there’s just one place to be.

On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge, on the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge,
On the barge.

Neil (?): Yeah! All right, [...], thank you. [...]
