Talk about your spooning and mooning,
Take a trip to Boston its fine Sailing up the bay, boys,
Hurray Boys I was on the upper deck when I met mine,
I said "Sue in your sailor suit you look certainly cute."
On the old Fall River Line On the old Fall River Line
I fell for Sussie's line of talk And Susie fell for mine
Then we fell in with a parson, And he tied us tight as twine
But I wish "oh Lord" I fell overboard, On the old Fall River Line.
When the boat is landing they're standing Spooners by the dozen,
and more While the captains calling And bauling
"Is there any body wants to go ashore,"
Ev'ry body just answers then "turn the boat 'round again."
