You ain't gonna get me honey
No way

Tearing down the highway in the pouring rain
Escaping from my wedding day
I heard the bells ringing in the local church
The ceremony's nearly under way
Telegrams came and the cheap champagne
Was driving everybody out their brains
Well I convinced some my friends I lost my nerve
And I pleaded I was being framed

Sailor show me which way to go
I screamed out loud
Sailor show me which way to go

Such a deadly silence
Due to my defiance
The wedding ground to a halt
Said I changed my mind
Ain't no use in your trying
So her brother punched me in the throat
Her mother got hysterical
The bitch was cynical
Father's in the corner drunk
Picking myself off the floor
I ran to the door
Down the fire escape and on my way ha ha

Sailor show me which way to go
You should heard the noise
Said sailor show me which way to go

Ain't no-one gonna nail me, friend, not one


So keep clean girlie
Find a man that's truly
Gonna love you from dusk till dawn wooh
Keep your front door key
Don't give him up for me
'Cause tomorrow I may be gone
You see
Your would be keeper's
Just an all night creeper
Nobody gonna change him now
Who thinks a marriage license
Should be like a dog's license
Renew it when the year runs out, that's right

Sailor show me which way to go
Ha ha yeah
Sailor show me which way to go


She had a body full of lust
But she had no bust
