Out between the tides and winds
Tossed around between the breakers
Monohull, boom, mast and sail
Never quite capsizing as the waves rising
But nothing ever really rattles me
I've sailed the optimist out on the open sea

Master Sam took a foundation course
He learnt to cling to the daggerboard
They last saw him zooming towards Zeebrugge
A flock of seagulls in his wake
But nothing ever really bothers me
I've sailed the optimist out on the open sea

If you're on an island you're out of luck
You won't get far on the back of a truck
When you're out of fuel and your pockets empty
The winds will always blow for free
Blow for free

Mistress Jane fell on hard times
She'd always been the best of daughters
She put her faith in fibreglass
She took a chance and took to water
But nothing every really frightens me
I've sailed the optimistic out on the open sea
