  • I'm floating in my boat
    Not the one I used to fish in
    But the boat I sit in wishin'
    I was still floating on my fishing boat
    And I'm out here on this river
    Really it's just a creek
    This river when I drink
    So I'm drinking on my river boat

    I could sail to the ocean
    The wind would come and get me
    But I ain't goin' nowhere quickly
    I'm just a drunkin' sailor
    Waiting on a gale
    With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale

    Aye
    Aye

    An old pirate sold me on a
    We traded straight across
    The boat I thought I wanted
    For the boat I hate I lost
    She'll sing when that wind whistles
    When it doesn't, well she don't
    Just ask that old pirate
    That's floatin' on my river boat

    I could sail to the ocean
    If the wind would come and get me
    But I ain't goin' nowhere quickly
    I'm just a drunkin' sailor
    Waiting on a gale
    With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale

    Never make a handshake deal while sharing someone bottle
    Never buy a boat son that doesn't have a throttle

    Aye
    Aye

    I could sail to the ocean
    If the wind would come and get me
    But I ain't goin' nowhere quickly
    I'm just a drunkin' sailor
    Waiting on a gale
    With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale

    I got a sailboat for sale

    Aye
