lyrics

SAILIN' AWAY

THINK I'LL SAIL AWAY FOR A YEAR AN' A DAY OR SO
GOODBYE GREY SKIES LET THE TRADE WINDS BLOW
AN' IF YOU'RE THINKIN' I'M NOT THINKIN' I'M NOT THINKIN' OF YOU
I'LL BUY SOME POSTCARDS AN' MAIL YOU ONE OR TWO

SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY
SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY

GONNA SAIL AWAY FOR A YEAR AN' A DAY QUITE SOON
BAREFOOT IN DE SUN DRINKIN' RUM BY DE LIGHT OF DE MOON
AN' IF YOU'RE THINKIN' I'M NOT THINKIN' OF YOU
I'LL TAKE SOME PHOTOGRAPHS THEN I'LL SEND YOU A FEW

SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY
SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY

THINK I'LL SAIL AWAY FOR A YEAR AN' A DAY OR MORE
BUILD A LITTLE GRASS SHACK ON A TROPICAL ISLAND SHORE
AN' IF YOU'RE THINKIN' I'M NOT THINKIN' I'M NOT THINKIN' OF YOU
I'LL PICK YOU A COCONUT AN' YES I'LL FORWARD IT TO YOU

SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY
SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY

SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY
SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY
SAILIN' THERE'S NO MORE I CAN SAY

SAILIN' I'M SAILIN' AWAY …
