    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 of their brains
    But I convinced my best 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
    Damned if I was skippin' on my way

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

    So keep clean girlie
    Find a man that's truly
    Gonna love you from dusk till dawn
    Keep your front door key
    Don't give him up for me
    'Cause tomorrow I may be gone
    You see, your wouldbe keepers
    All night creepin'
    Nobody gonna change in there
    Who thinks a marriage life should be like a dog's life
    So let's renew it when the year runs out

    Sailor show me which way to go
    Sailor show me which way to go

    She had a belly full of lust but she had no bust
