Sailing, Sailing,
Sure wish we had a boat,
Instead of this leaky old guitar
So we could stay afloat!
Sailing, Sailing
Hoping the sharks don’t bite!
If a big octopus
Does not swallow us,
We may get home tonight!

Sailing, Sailing,
Hoping it doesn’t rain,
Because if it does,
A terrible fuzz
Will grow on our ears again.
Sailing, sailing,
Trying to hitch a ride!
If you ride on a whale
Hold onto his tail
Or you may end up inside!

Sailing, Sailing,
Paddling like a frog,
You play a kazoo,
And holler “Wahoo!”
While splashing through the fog.
Sailing, Sailing,
What if you cannot swim?
Just find a seahorse,
With a saddle, of course,
And you can ride home on him!
