Sail Away

By Randy Newman
Covered by Harry Nilsson on RCA album "..That's The Way It Is"

 

In America you'll get food to eat

Won't have to run through the jungle

And scuff up your feet

You'll just sing about Jesus and drink wine all day

It's great to be an American

 

Ain't no lions or tigers ain't no mamba snake

Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake

Ev'rybody is as happy as a man can be

Climb aboard little wog sail away with me

 

CHORUS

Sail away sail away

We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

Sail away-sail away

We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

 

In America every man is free

To take care of his home and his family

You'll be as happy as a monkey in a monkey tree

You're all gonna be an American

 

CHORUS
