"Sailor" as written by and Rod/wood Stewart....
In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor
In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor

I think dirt
A suicide jump to run a self check
Oh my girl
Do you only like the younger or the brain dead?

Three way, freeway, take me like a sailor
Three way, freeway, wanna be a sailor?

A-quick step, boy girl love me like you love her
A Knee-jerk, slow work, wanna be a sailor?

In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor
In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor

A child like a lipstick fight before the nose dive,
My princess, do you only like the easy and the snow blind?

Three way, freeway, take me like a sailor
Three way, freeway, wanna be a sailor?

A-quick step, boy girl love me like you love her
A knee-jerk, slow work, wanna be a sailor

Like a fever, I wanna be a sailor
Like a fever, I wanna be the sailor
Like a fever, I wanna be a sailor
Like a fever, I wanna be the sailor

Three way, freeway, take me like a sailor
Three way, freeway, wanna be a sailor?

A-quick step, boy girl love me like you love her
A knee-jerk, slow work, wanna be a sailor

    General CommentIt seems to me to be less about homosexuality and more about obsessive heterosexuality. A want to be nearer to some unrequited love object to the extent that one grows a sexual interest in their significant other by proxy. The third in the "three way" is figurative, it's the concept of the female, not the female herself. It's the extreme of the "you are having sex with everybody the person you're having sex with has had sex with." In other words, it's wicked romantic.

    General CommentIn our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor
    In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor (His first invitation to have sex with a man)

    I think dirt (His mind races, he gets excited and thinks he's 'dirt' for wanting this)
    A suicide jump to run a self check (He analyses what he wants. Is he sure he wants to go through with it? YES)
    Oh my girl (Sarcastic, calling his male lover a girl)
    Do you only like the younger or the braindead? (Thinks low of himself, or prehaps this is in reference to his lover's previous lovers)

    Three way, freeway, take me like a sailor (He wants it, he wants to be free and be a 'sailor' with this man)
    Three way, freeway, wanna be a sailor? ('Are you sure you want this?')

    A-quick step, boy girl love me like you love her (Quickly, he realises he is attracted to both males and females)
    A Knee-jerk, slow work, wanna be a sailor? (Knee jerk, slow work, playful sex etc)

    In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor
    In our cell you ask me do I wanna be a sailor

    A child like a lipstick fight before the nose dive, (The first kiss, messy, all over the place but full of lust. Nose dive being the act of sex)
    My princess, do you only like the easy and the snow blind? (Another sarcastic namecalling 'princess'. Thinking he's submitted himself too easily, too quickly because he's so eager)

    etc.

    My thoughts anyway.
    AMAZING song though, so so so so sexy.

    General Commentwell a "three-way freeway" is a three-some.. what is it about navy-men turning to each other for comfort on those long, lonely nights? and also a "sailor" is a hack at a homosexual man. so.. i'm guessing that someone is inviting him into a gay three-some...
