Songs & Lyrics


Due to a new German law it's not allowed to offer or distribute most of the SAILOR lyrics on the Internet any more. Those lyrics that can still be seen here are all Sashay Music 1973 - 1978 (thanks to Georg Kajanus), except for "The Harbour Bar Bell" ( and thanks to Rob Alderton). Lyrics and details about the SAILOR songs (all in alphabetical order) can be found below.

Lead vocals (at the original recording):
