I don't know what your folks got against me, girl
But I do know that I want you permanently in my world
What's age or color or money when you love one another?
I know you keep saying to me 'Our love will win and then you'll see.'

But baby, sail away with me
I can't wait another day
So you and I (can be free), oh baby
To share our love under the stars above
We'll spend the rest of our lives making love
Morning, noon, and night

Take the wings from a bird and don't you know it can't fly.
If they take your love from me, I will surely die.
Don't get lost in all they're saying.
Games are all that they're playing
I know you keep saying to me 'Our Love will win and then you'll see.'

But baby, sail (away with me)
I can't wait another day, girl
So you and I can be free, oh baby
To share our love under the stars above
We'll spend the rest of our lives making love
Morning, noon, and night baby

Yeah baaby
True love is a once in a lifetime thing, my dear.
We can't let what others think about us destroy what we share.
You said 'We can take the rejection
We can build a wall of protection.'
I can feel the pressure closing in all around us
Girl don't let them destroy our love.

But baby, sail away with me
Where you, girl, and I can be free
We're gonna share our love under the stars above
We'll spend the rest of our lives making love morning, noon a
