I'm just saying
I want my mummy back
Lost her to the drink
But her soul's intact
Mama said to me
Be proud of who you are
She saw Jesus in the eyes
Of a broken man

Sail away
I am learning my lesson
Mama sends her love
And Godspeed you come home soon

One little white lie was enough
To conceal my goodbye
Then I stole away
Kissed her farewell
And wished her the best for life
Then I stole away, woah
Like a thief in the night

I'm just saying
Not behind daddy's back
He takes care of her
In his overtime
He's no saint I know
As he goes around the town
Watch him cry himself to sleep
He's my daddy

Sail away
I will go it alone now
Leave my past behind
To seek fortune and fame

One little white lie was enough
To conceal my goodbye
Then I stole away
Kissed her farewell
And wished her the best for life
Then I stole away, woah
Like a thief in the night

Sail away
There's a storm in a teacup
Mama sends her love
And Godspeed you come home

One little white lie was enough
To conceal my goodbye
Then I stole away
Kissed her farewell
And wished her the best for life
Then I stole away, woah
Like a thief in the night

One little white lie was enough
To conceal my goodbye
Then I stole away
Like a prodigal son
And wished her the best for life
Then I stole away, woah
Like a thief in the night
