"Rockin' the Boat" as written by Jim Rushing and Ricky Skaggs....
Always signed on to go on lifelong loving cruise
We set sail on a sea of love as an able bodied crew
With warm wind across the bow happiness did prevail
Three months out of port we were headed for an icy gale

First mate of mine well I see you fine
At the mop and broom a chore
Well lesson two is lost on you
It takes two to man the oars

And sorry ain't your cup of tea
The words stick in your throat
Well I still believe your a fine girl
But I swear your a rotten boat

Are you rockin' the boat honey
Just to get my goat
Well you can't keep love afloat
When you're rockin' that boat

You know before we left the shore
We saw things eye to eye
Now every time I reach for you
You're emotions wave bye-bye

And you know when a man jumps overboard
That man he's gone astray
You know you that I feel like bailin' out
When you keep my love at bay

Are you rockin' the boat honey
Just to get my goat
Well you can't keep love afloat
When you're rockin' that boat
