I've Been to Harlem

I've Been to Harlem

I've been to Harlem, I've been to Dover
I've traveled this wide world all over.
Over, over, three times over
Drink all the brandywine* and turn the glasses over.
     Sailing east, sailing west
     Sailing o'er the ocean,
     You'dd better watch out when the boat begins to rock
     Or you'll lose your girl in the ocean.
