I had been looking for this one for a long time too.  The group is the "Girls Next Door".

They're The Girls Next Door.  I wish I could win money for getting this answer right!  Cause DJ's don't know either what I'm talking about when I've tried to request the song.  I don't know what happened to them, but they were a one hit wonder with this one, and I'm not sure if it was even a #1 hit.

Its a song by the The Girls Next Door  and is also called Slow Boat To China.  Not the same song as the Jazz version that has been redone a 100 times...

Sorry but "Slow Boat to China" WAS recorded by The Girls Next Door. It made the country charts in the mid to late 80's. Hope this helps. I have a copy of the song and it's probably on youtube also.

I know that song.  I thought it was an all girl group "The Girls Next Door"?  I've been looking for it as well but can't find it.

It's sorta like another song I'm looking for by a country woman "Shauna Smith" or some variation of the name Shauna.  She was called "The Yodeling Cowgirl" but I've been unable to locate any information on her.

I can usually locate song by artist, excerpts and even circa around when the song was released in country, rock and other genres. ****** PLEASE do not ask me about videos. I do not watch them.******** I've been singing since I started talking, singing in public since I was 7. Still at it at 56. I have an extensive repertoire as well as lots of music. I also actively research for other people, including local djs, music that no one else can find, especially being given just paraphrased lines of songs. I'm the one @ karaoke that usually gets asked, "Who did this song?" or "Do you know a song that goes" and if it's country, I usually can name the song and artist, sometimes give within a couple of years the year of release. I've got a lot of lyrics in my database, as well as friends with working musicians who do open mic jams who have even more extensive databases than I do.
