Ella Fitzgerald – A Ship Without A Sail lyrics
I don't know what day it is
Or if it's dark or fair
Somehow that's just the way it is
And I don't really care

I go to this or that place
I seem alive and well
My head is just a hat place
My breast an empty shell
And I've a faded dream to sell

All alone, all at sea
Why does nobody care for me?
When there's no love to hold my love
Why is my heart so frail?
Like a ship without a sail

Out on the ocean
Sailors can use a chart
I'm on the ocean
Guided by just a lonely heart

Still alone, still at sea
Still there's no one to care for me
When there's no hand to hold my hand
Life is a loveless tale
For a ship without a sail

Still alone, still at sea
Still there's no one to care for me
When there's no hand to hold my hand
Life is a love, loveless tale
For a ship without a sail
