Hey little babe you're changing Babe are you feeling sore? It ain't no use in pretending You don't wanna play no more
It's plain that you ain't no baby What would your mother say? You're all dressed up like a lady How come you behave this way?
Sail away sweet sister Sail across the sea Maybe you'll find somebody To love you half as much as me My heart is always with you No matter what you do Sail away sweet sister I'll always be in love with you
Forgive me for what I told you My heart makes a fool of me You know that I'll never hold you I know that you gotta be free, yeah
Sail away sweet sister Sail across the sea Maybe you'll find somebody To love you half as much as me Take it the way you want it But when they let you down my friend Sail away sweet sister Back to my arms again
Hot child don't you know you're young You got your whole life ahead of you? And you can throw it away too soon Way too soon
Sail away sweet sister Sail across the sea Maybe you'll find somebody's Gonna love you half as much as me My heart is always with you No matter what you do Sail away sweet sister I'll always be in love with you

Jamie from CambridgeIncidentally, this song inspired Guns n' Roses' song "Sweet Child of Mine", which was, in turn, a song to Axle's then-fiance (daughter of an Everly Brother). Sometimes, in concert, Axle would begin Sweet Child of Mine by singing a few lines of Sail Away Sweet Sister acapella.
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
