Let me sail, let me sail: let the Orinoco Flow.
Let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli
Let me sail, let me sail: let me crash upon your shore
Let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea

Deh deh deh deh deh deh
Deh deh deh deh

Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Bissan, to Palau in the shade of Avalon
From Fiji, to Tiree and the isles of Ebony
From Peru, to Cebu: feel the power of Babylon
From Bali, to Cali: far beneath the Coral Sea

Deh deh deh deh deh deh
Deh deh deh deh

Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu... ooh
Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu... ooh
Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu... aaah

Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From the North to the South: Ebudae unto Khartoum
From the deep Sea of Clouds: to the Island of the Moon
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never been
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen

We can sail, we can sail: with the Orinoco Flow
We can sail, we can sail
(Sailaway, sailaway, sailaway)
We can steer we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel
We can sigh, say goodbye
Ross and his dependencies
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can reach we can beach
On the shores of tripoli
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From bali to cali; far beneath the coral sea
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Bissau to Palau
In the shade of Avalon
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can reach; we can beach far beyond the Yellow Sea
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Peru to Cebu
Hear the power of Babylon
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Ahhh aahhh ah
Ahhh aahhh ah
Ahhh
