Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat
Pilot/Goodbye Song
By: Cast of Guys and Dolls
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Artie, Kurt, and Tina
Place: The Choir Room
Episode: Pilot
Goodbye

Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat from Guys and Dolls is featured in Pilot, the first episode of Season One, and in Goodbye, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Three. It is sung by New Directions with solos by Artie, Kurt, and Tina.

In Pilot, the tempo gets off-beat quickly, and Rachel comments that they "suck." The song ends with Artie crashing into the piano. Rachel says that giving the solo of this song to a boy in a wheelchair is ridiculous and ironic. Artie responds by saying that he believes Mr. Schuester thinks the irony is what makes it interesting. After that, Rachel makes her statement: "There's nothing ironic about show choir!" and runs out of the classroom. Will follows her and she tells him she needs a proper male lead who can keep up with her vocally (which she doesn't see in Artie or Kurt). Mr. Schuester goes off to find a new male lead.

The original five are seen by Will as they perform this song at the beginning of the season finale of Season Three, Goodbye. As the rest of New Directions and Will watch them perform, Will flashes back to the first time they did the performance and smiles delightfully as they finish. Santana comments that it's the most ghetto performance she has seen. Artie then says that they've gone from ghetto to winning the Nationals championship.

Lyrics

New Directions:
Ooh, ahh
Ooh, ahh

Artie with New Directions harmonizing:
And as I laughed at those passengers to heaven
A great big wave came and washed me over board!
And as I sank and I hollered "Someone save me!"
That's the moment I woke up
Thank the lord (New Directions: Thank the Lord, thank the lord)

Artie (New Directions):
And I said to myself, "Sit down" (Said to myself "Sit down")
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat (Sit down)
And I said to myself, "Sit down" (Said to myself "Sit down")
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat
And the devil will drag you under (Ohhhh)
By the sharp lapel of your checkered coat
Sit down

Artie with New Directions:
Sit down, sit down, sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat

Kurt with New Directions:
Sit down, you're rockin', sit down, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

Kurt and Tina:
Sit down, you're rockin', sit down, sit down
Sit down, you're rockin' the boat

Artie and Tina with New Directions:
Sit down

Tina with New Directions:
You're rockin' the boat
