All these wise guys tryin' to put us down
We gonna bring 'em on in
Bring 'em on home

See them stumblin' by the wayside
See them stumblin' by the wayside
Though it won't sail, 'cross the water, yeah

Row-in boats across the water
Pick them up baby, row them on
Bring 'em on in, bring 'em on home

Well, I was drivin', in my Jaguar
Doin' ninety miles an hour
I was drivin' up a clear way
It was just my luckiest day

An' I kept speed up
An' I rowed these boats
Bring 'em on in
Bring 'em on in

Bi, do, a, di, do, a, di, do, a, do

Now, I went walkin' down by Queensway
When I met a friend of mine
He said, "Come on back, back to my pad
We will have a nice time if you pick me up
Row me on, bring me in, bring me in”

When I stepped off the boat
And I walked upon the dry land
Slowly, to the car park
And I jumped in, outta my mind, outta my mind
Bring 'em in, bring 'em on in, bring 'em in

Ay, ooo, lotta, ooo, li, otta
Ooo, li, otta, ooo, li, otta
Ooo, li, otta, ooo, ah

Bring 'em in baby, bring 'em on in
Hey, hey now
Bring 'em on home
Bring 'em in, hey, hey, hey
Bring 'em on home, all right
Bring 'em on home

I said, pick me up, baby
Row me home, bring me in, hey

Bi, do, a, I, ooo, le, ooo, le, a, ooo, le, a
Ooo, la, te, do, da, la
Bi, oh, da, e da, ee, da, ooo, a la
All right
