I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
Cause I've got to be free, free to face the life that's ahead of me
On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (you guys)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

repeat chorus

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies

Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (you guys)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (everybody now) Repeat

Chef: Make it funky now....
Cartman: Hey, your screwin up my song! Hey! Whats goin on?
Chef: (sings chorus funky and low)
Come sail away with me (you guys)
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (everybody now) repeat

    General Commentis this even in an episode of the show? I know cartman makes several styx references and comments about this song but does he actually ever sing it on TV? If he does, its the one episode that seems to have evaded my sight...

    General CommentI don't think it was ever on the show. I think it was made exclusively for the Chef-Aid soundtrack that came out.
