Sail On

Lionel Richie

Sail on down the line
'Bout-a half-a mile or so
Don't really wanna know-a where you're going

Maybe once or twice
Time after time I tried-a
To hold on to what we got
But now you're going

And I don't mind about the things you're gonna sail on
I give all my money and my time
I know it's a shame
But I'm giving you back your name
Yes, 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 on-a
Friends says 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 thinkin'
I gave you my heart and I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothin' 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 everyone to know
I'm looking for a good time
Good time

Sail on honey
Good times never felt so good
