I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean
Through restless waters 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 marauders
Unrepenting, often empty, sail on, sail on sailor

Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail
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 Ive been given
Never ending, unrelenting

Heartbreak searing, always fearing
Never caring, persevering
Sail on, sail on sailor, sail on, sail on sailor

I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways
Past shipwrecked 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 crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying

Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor

You gotta sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
