Sammy went out on a lark
sailing his boat in the dark
and while he got drunk
his little boat sunk
so his hangover went to the shark
A sailor one day, while out sailing
Thought he heard someone screaming and wailing
The source of the shout
As he later found out
Was an octopus tied to the railing
There was a CEO with but one failing
He drank himself sloppy when sailing.
He had three shots at dawn
And drank the whole day long.
Cleaning his yacht took hours of bailing.
The old philosopher is at your service
To help you get through life's big circus
It ain't all that tricky
Pretend you're on a dinghy
Sailing the south seas with happiness plus

An eccentric young lady named Vi
Got it into her head she could fly.
So, in spite of her shrink,
With a nod and a wink,
She went sailing away through the sky.
We raise our glasses while waving the black flag
to friends sailing through the mid-century drag.
When embracing Kathy and Ginny
we will concede to know the skinny
since passions rise steady while body parts sag.
There once was an unusual tuna
Charlie dreamed of sailing to the luna
Bought a huge water balloon
But along came a typhoon
Farewell Charlie, wannabe Kahuna
Sure annoying while reclining in my recliner
Bell rings, someone wants to sell me a trip on an ocean liner
Had just fallen asleep
Dreamt of sailing the ocean deep
When he refused to leave I gave him a big shiner
So Smoothly Surely Started Sailing
So smoothly we seemed to start out sailing;
From storm, took on water and were failing;
Wild are waves;
To were slaves;
Then out from our boat we had to be bailing.
There once was a man with no dread.
He sailed an infant over head.
All glee with “coo” mouth.
A spew — it went South.
A wash - on the tongue it did spread.
There was a man named SStallone;
Who used to fly his drone;
But during a break,
he made a mistake;
What a terrible day to crash and not fly or flown;

A little yacht it was painted blue
Slowly sailed by and came in view
Of people sitting by a lake
Eating sandwiches and fancy cake
What a leisurely thing to do
It's not simple to find a train at sea
or eye planes climbing on the trees
never got to sight ox fly
fish swimming in river dry
boats travelling rails sailing free
Young Connor he voyaged The Nile
By sailing a live crocodile
The beastie went SNAP!
And swallowed the chap!
Oh well, it was fun for a while.
Start Sailing Slower Surely Soon
Should start sailing slower surely soon;
Mind melded making magnificent moon;
Then think that tremendous turned the tune.
You can turn into all sorts of things
that will include a tremendous tune.
That first sip of kickapoo juice to start the morn
The old ship starts a-sailing, taking off from home port
Even still tied to the quay
No stopping me, it's out to sea
Dragging the pier with me, our minds we transport
If I had my life to live over, some might envy
Wouldn't make many changes, in fact if any
Had a glorious time
A great journey was mine
Floating above the clouds or sailing love's ferry
Santa Sailing Out To Sea
While Santa is sailing out to sea,
On a cruise, my wife is mad at me;
Does have desire,
Wants to inspire;
Not home, but sea would rather be.
Hilarious up to the end,
the witty, short verses he penned.
And his limerick score?
Fifteen hundred or more…
Aloha, smooth sailing, my friend!
