Blanket For A Sail

By Harry Nilsson

Way out on the ocean
Far beyond the seven seas
There's a tiny little boat
Faith is keeping her afloat
And a tiny little skipper with his worn and tattered coat
You see the law of the ocean
Days yuo shall never fail
Use your heart as a rudder
Faith as a compass
And a blanket for a sail
Sleep for the weary
Dreams for us all
Rest your head on a pillow
And i'll tell you a tale
Use your heart as a blanket
And a blanket foer a sail
Row, row, row your boat gently through a dream
Way out on the ocean
Far beyond the seven seas
There's a tiny little boat
Faith is keeping her afloat
And a tiny little skipper with his worn and tattered coat
You see the law of the ocean
Days yuo shall never fail
Use your heart as a rudder
Faith as a compass
And a blanket for a sail
