Boy, you know you make me float
Boy, you really get me high (ooh)
I feel like I'm on dope
'Cause you, you serve me on a regular (you serve me on a regular)
Boy, we need to tie this rope
Before we drift any deeper (before we drift any deeper)
There now hold me close
Boy, let's take this overboard now

I want you to rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat (yeah)
Work it in the middle
Work the middle, work the middle, work the middle
Change positions for me (change positions)
New positions, new position, new position
Now stroke it, baby (stroke it for me)
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me, stroke it for me

Ooh, baby, I love your stroke
'Cause you, 'cause you get me where I'm going
('Cause you get me where I'm going, yeah)
And truly you'll get my vote
'Cause I believe
I believe you know just what you're doing now
Baby, now we can coast (let's coast, let's coast)
Let's don't get in a hurry (no, no)
That's too slow (hey, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Go ahead and put that thing in overdrive

I want you to rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat (hey)
Work it in the middle (work it, baby, work it, baby)
Work the middle, work the middle, work the middle
Change positions for me (change positions)
New position, new position, new position
Now stroke it, baby (stroke it for me)
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me, stroke it for me

I want you to rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat (hey)
Work it in the middle
Work the middle, work the middle, work the middle (hey, hey)
Change positions for me (change positions)
New position, new position, new position
Now stroke it, baby (stroke it for me)
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me, stroke it for me (yeah)

Stroke it for me
Hmm, stroke it, baby, stroke it, baby
Hmm, work it it, baby, work it, baby
Ooh, stroke it
There is something I want you to do for me

I want you to use yourself (hey)
Like you never ever used it before (never)
To explore my body (explore it, baby)
Until you reach the shore (yeah)
You'll be calling, calling for more (callin')

Rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat
Work it in the middle
Work the middle, work the middle, work the middle
(Work it, baby, work it, baby)
Change positions for me (change positions)
New position, new position, new position
Now stroke it, baby (stroke it for me)
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me, stroke it for me (baby)

I want you to rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat
Work it in the middle
Work the middle, work the middle, work the middle (work it, yeah)
Change positions for me (change positions)
New position, new position, new position (change)
Now stroke it, baby (stroke it for me)
Stroke it for me (yeah), stroke it for me, stroke it for me

Rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat
Work the middle, work the middle
Work the middle, work the middle
Change positions for me (change positions)
New position, new position, new position
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me
Stroke it for me, stroke it for me

Rock the boat (rock the boat)
Rock the boat, rock the boat, rock the boat

    General CommentI'm not a big fan of Aaliyah cos she didn't do my kind of music.

    But what some of you are writing is really fucked. Just because I'd rather hear riffs than rapping doesn't mean I've got to hate her. I appreciate her music, it was good stuff.

    I was looking for these lyrics for a girl I know, she loves this song and if it makes her, like it makes millions of others, feel good.. then isn't that a good thing?

    What I don't understand is why some of you would look up this song just to let us know that you prefer your music to this and that you don't care she's dead.

    Do we care you don't care? I don't. But it bothers me that you have nothing better to do that shove your negative opinions down the throats of people who actually like Aaliyah.
