I sail an ocean, unsettled ocean

Through restless water, and deep commotion

Often frightened, unenlightened

Sail on, sail on sailor



I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters

Sail through the sorrows, of life's maurauders

Unrepenting, often empty

Sail on, sail on sailor



Caught like a sewer rat, alone but I see

Bought like a crust of bread, but oh do I wail

Seldom stumble, never crumble, try to tumble, life's a rumble

Feel the stinging, I've been given, never ending, unrelenting

Heartbreaks nearing, always fearing, never caring, persevering

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor



I work the seaway (I work the seaway)

The gale swept seaway, (oh seaway)

Past shipwrecked daughters, (oh daughters)

Of wicked waters

Uninspired, drenched and tired

Wail on, wail on sailor



Always needing, ever bleeding, never feeding, all my feelings

Damn the thunder, must I blunder, there's no wonder,all I'm under

Stop your cryin', and the lyin', and the sighin', and my dyin'

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor



(You've got to )

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor

Sail on, sail on sailor
