On a Slow Boat to China (Slowly with a beat)

New York: Melrose Music Corp. 1948. Single large folio leaf printed and folded to make a typical two-page sheet music spread with monochrome cover illustration and a terminal page advertisement for other 1948 efforts (none so durable as this). Item very slightly edgeworn with some light creasings along its bottom edge, paperstock faintly toned, no markings, a very good copy.

"I'd love to get you ON A SLOW BOAT TO CHI-NA, All to myself, a-lone. Get you and keep you in my arms ev-er-more.. Out on the briny, with a moon big and shiny.." Emptor to expect just the one stanza; "There is no verse to this song, 'Cause I don't want to wait a mo-ment too long.."
