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, the gale-swept seaways Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired Wail 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 Sail on, sail on sailor Sail on, sail on sailor Sail on, sail on sailor
