Sailor Lyrics

You ain't gonna get me honey no way
Tearing down the highway in the pouring rain
Escaping from my wedding day
I heard the bells ringing in the local church

The ceremony's nearly under way
Telegrams came and the cheap champagne
Was driving everybody out of their brains
I convinced my best friends
I lost my nerve and I pleaded I was being framed

"Sailor show me which way to go"
I screamed out loud
"Sailor show me which way to go"

Such a deadly silence due to my defiance
The wedding ground to a halt
Said I changed my mind
Ain't no use in your trying

So her brother punched me in the throat
Her mother got hysterical the bitch was cynical
Father's in the corner drunk picking myself off the floor
I ran to the door, down the fire escape and on my way

"Sailor show me which way to go"
You should have heard the noise
Said "Sailor show me which way to go"

So keep clean girlie
Find a man that's truly
Gonna love you
From dusk till dawn

Keep your front door key don't give him up for me
'Cause tomorrow I may be gone
You see, your would be keeper's
Still an all night creeper

Nobody gonna change him now
Who thinks a marriage license
Should be like a dog's license
So let's renew it when the year runs out

Sailor show me which way to go
Sailor show me which way to go

She had a body full of lust
But she had no bust
