Sail on down the line
'Bout a half a mile or so
And I don't really wanna know
Where you're going

Maybe once or twice you see
Time after time I tried to
Hold on to what we got
But now you're goin'

And I don't mind
About the things you're gonna say Lord
I gave all my money and my time
I know it's a shame
But I'm giving you back your name, yeah yeah

Guess I'll be on my way
I won't be back to stay
I guess I'll move along
I'm looking for a good time

Sail on down the line
Ain't it funny how the time can go
All my friends say they told me so
But it doesn't matter

It was plain to see
That a small town boy like me
Just wasn't your cup of tea
I was wishful thinking

I gave you my heart
And I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothin' in return
You know it ain't so hard to say
"Would you please just go away?"
Yeah yeah

I've thrown away the blues
I'm tired of bein' used
I want everyone to know
I'm looking for a good time, good time

Ooh sail on honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on sugar
Good times never felt so good
