Well I'm sailin', sailin'
Like a sail boat on the sea
Well I'm sailin', sailin'
Like a sail boat on the sea
Well I'm just sailin', sailin'
People, from door to door

Yeah, my baby
Wouldn't wanna take me back again 
Yeah, my baby
Wouldn't wanna take me back again 
Well then I'd be to sailin'
People, from door to door

Well, I sail in the mornin'
Well then I'm sailin' late at night 
Well, I'm sailin' in the mornin'
Well then I'm sailin' late at night 
When will I get through sailin'
When I won't have to sail no more
