Sail on down the line
’Bout a half a mile or so
And a, don't really wanna know ah
Where you're goin’
Maybe once or twice you see
Time after time i tried
Hold on to what we got
But now you're going         And I don't mind
                             About the things you're gonna say, Lord
     (mv link)               I gave all my money and my time
                             I know it's a shame
                             But I'm giving you back your name
                             Guess I'll be on my way
                             I won't be back to stay
                             I guess I'll move along
                             I'm looking for a good time!
Sail on down the line
Ain't it funny how the time can go
All my friends say they told me so
But it doesn't matter

It was plain to see
That a small town boy like me
Just a, wasn't your cup of tea
I was wishful thinking!
I gave you my heart
And I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothing in return
You know it ain't so hard to say
Would you please just go away
I've thrown away the blues
I'm tired of being used I want ah, everyone to know
I'm looking for, for a good time, good time

Whoa, sail on, honey!
Good times never felt so good!
Sail on, honey!
Good times never felt so good!
Sail on, sugar!
Good times never felt so good!
Sail on!
