Y Yacht (yacht Song) Lyrics

I’m sailing on the sea in my white yacht,
my white yacht, my white yacht.
I’m sailing on the sea in my white yacht,
sailing on the sea, sea, sea.
The sail of my yacht has a big blue star,
a big blue star, a big blue star.
The sail of my yacht has a big blue star,
sailing on the sea, sea, sea.
