As I Sail
Music & Lyrics: Alan Robertson

Verse 1:
As I stand on rocky feet
Who wasn't by the water's edge?
And to the girl who's selling meat
I could keep her smiling
And in the middle of a stormy deep blue ocean
As I come to Cardigan street

Chorus:
As I sail upon the sea
Can't you see the fish are all doing ecstasy?

Verse 2:
I think for once we've gone too far
Can't we turn it back again?
Have the men all given up?
Do the women need a star
For to wish upon? or are they really beating
themselves into a corner?

Chorus:
As I sail upon the sea
Can't you see the fish are all doing ecstasy?

Verse 3:
So do we need a setting sun?
Draw a veil over it all?
Is it really all that bad?
Can't we save it?
I think I'll leave you all to suffer all alone
I'm going somewhere not so bad

Chorus:
As I sail upon the sea
Can't you see the fish are all doing ecstasy?
