Sail On, Sailor (Beach Boys) MIDI
midi file   alt: midi file

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 daughters,
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, 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, the gale-swept seaways,
Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters;
Uninspired, drenched and tired,
Sail on, wail on, sailor.

Always needing, even bleeding,
Never feeding all my feelings;
Damn the thunder, must I blunder.
There's no wonder, all I'm under.
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. [fade]
