They spent exorbitant amounts of money building a studio on a farm in Baambrugge, Holland recording it. When the band turned the album over to Dave Bursyn at Warner Bros. he rejected it because there was no potential single . Brian Wilson with the Wondermints played 'Sail On Sailor' in Auckland just before last Xmas and got a huge ovation. Gene Simmons of KissSongwriter Interviews.
I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean Through restful waters and deep commotion Often frightened, unenlightened Sail on, sail on sailor I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders Unrepenting, often empty Sail on, sail on sailor Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail Bought like a crust of bread, but oh do. I wail Seldom stumble, never crumble Try to tumble, life's a rumble Feel the stinging I've been given Never ending, unrelenting Heartbreak searing, always fearing Never caring, persevering Sail on, sail on, sailor I work.

Artist: The Beach Boys ( Beach Boys). Translations: Spanish. I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean. Through restful waters and deep commotion. Often frightened, unenlightened. Sail on, sail on sailor. I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters. Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders. Unrepenting, often empty. Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail. Bought like a crust of bread, but oh do I wail. Never caring, persevering. Sail on, sail on, sailor. I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways. Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters. Uninspired, drenched and tired. Wail on, wail on, sailor. Always needing, even bleeding. Never feeding all my feelings.
