"Come On Down To My Boat" by Every Mother's Son.

OK, more 60's one-hit wonders: This '67 Was Farrell/Jerry Goldstein pop-rock composition was first recorded by The Rare Breed but failed to chart. An NYC-based pop-folk ensemble took it to #6 in '67, their only hit. Group? Hit?

Yesterday's answer: "Swinging on A Star". " Songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen was at Crosby’s house one evening for dinner, and to discuss a song for the movie "Going My Way". During the meal one of the children began complaining about how he didn’t want to go to school the next day. (Crosby) turned to his son and said to him, “If you don’t go to school, you might grow up to be a mule. Do you wanna do that?”
