"Don't Rock The Boat" as written by and Bob Marley....
Please don't you rock my boat,
Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin' anyhow
Please don't you rock my boat, no!
Cause I don't want my boat to be rockin'

I'm tellin' you that, oh, oo-er!
I like it like-a this. Can you hear?
And you should know, ooh-oh!
When I like it-a like-a this
I'm-a really it, ooh-yeah!
You satis - satis - satisfy my soul mornin' time,
Evenin', oh-oh!
Fy my soul!

Yes, I been a-tellin' you,
Make me the sweetest case
Happy inside all the time
Oh, can't you see what you've done for me?
Yeah

You make me feel like, when we bend a new corner,
We feel like sweepstake winner, yeah!
When we bend a new corner,
We feel like sweepstake winner
And I said, oh! Ooh-oh! I like it-a like-a this
Yes, I do!
And you should know, ooh-oh!
When I like it-a like-a this
I got it; just can't miss, ooh!

Satis - satisfy my soul, darlin'
Make me love you in the mornin' time, yeah
If ever I treated you bad, make it up to me one time
Cause I'm happy inside all the time
I want you beside me, yeah! - to be mine
One thing you got to do
Is when-a we holdin' 'ands together
You've got to know that we love-a - love eachother, yeah!

And if every time you should walk away from me now,
You'll know I'll need your sympathy, yea-eah!
Can you see? Do you believe me?
Oh, darlin', darlin', I'm callin', callin'!
Satisfy my soul - satisfy my soul!
Never, never, never give it up now
All in the same boat
Rockin on the same rock
Got to get together, lovin' eachother
And can't you see what I've got for you, yeah

I'm happy - happy - happy - happy - happy
And not even time to be blue, yeah
Come a little closer

    General CommentI think this song means He's happy, and theres no reason not to be. So if your not a happy person go have your problems some where else. Don't rock my boat with your rough seas of unhappyness. Also I think it's about a girl who he loves and wants with him. He feels like a winner when shes with him. I'm almost thinking the got in a fight and he want's her back. never let me be alone hold me tight make me feel alright. If ever I treated you bad, make it up to me one time. I also think he want her to satisfy his sexual needs...
    I'm happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, and not you can turn me blue now
    Come a little closer, satisfy my ...

    General CommentThis is the original version of Satisfy my Soul before they revised it. I love how vulnerable Bob's voice sounds in this song. Truly a beautiful creation of his. <3
