The Beach Boys — Sail On, Sailor lyrics

I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean
Through restful 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, I've been given
Never ending, unrelenting
Heartbreak searing, always fearing
Never caring, persevering
Sail on, sail on, sailor

I work the seaways, (I work the seaways)
The gale-swept seaways (oh, the seaways)
Past shipwrecked daughters (oh, the daughters)
Of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired
Wail on, wail on, sailor

Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeling all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder
There's no wonder, woo, I'm under
(Woo) Stop the 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
Sail on, sail on, sailor
Sail on, sail on, sailor
Sail on, sail on, sailor
