Randy Newmen I will Go Sailing No More 720p

"I Will Go Sailing No More" is the name of a song in Toy Story. It was written and performed by Randy Newman, but is lyrically told from the perspective of Buzz Lightyear who, after realizing who he really is, concludes that he will never sail again, as it turns out he can't fly.

The song is listed as Track 3 on the Toy Story Soundtrack.

Summary

The song starts just after Buzz has finished watching the commercial for Buzz Lightyear toys being sold at Al's Toy Barn, which makes him crestfallen due to the fact that he is a toy. Dejected, he walks out of the room and down the hallway of Sid's house. Passing the top of the stairs, he pauses to look up through the railing to see an open window, where he spots a bird flying past. Despite Woody's taunting words: "You are a toy! You can't fly!" ringing in his head, he raises his head, determination in face, closes his wrist communicator as to deny its fine print of "MADE IN TAIWAN" written on it, then climbs up the railing to the banister. In a last desperate attempt to prove he is a real Space Ranger, he pops open his wings, aims himself toward the window chanting his catchphrase: "To infinity and beyond!" then jumps from the railing. Soon, he finds himself falling down the stairs, away from the window, and he crashes onto the stairs and lands on the entryway floor. He recovers from the fall, opens his eyes, and then realizes that his left arm has become dislodged from his body and hangs his head down in defeat as the song ends.

Lyrics

Out among the stars I'd sail
Way beyond the moon
In my silver ship I sailed
In a dream that ended too soon
Now I know exactly who I am
And what I'm here for
And I will go sailing no more

All the things I thought I'd been
All the brave things I'd done
Vanished like a snowflake
With the rising of the sun
Never more to sail my ship
Where no man has gone before
And I will go sailing no more

But no, it can't be true
I could fly if I wanted to
Like a bird in the sky
If I believed I could fly
Why, I'd fly!

Clearly, I will go sailing, no more...

Trivia

  • The entire song is not played in the movie, as the second verse is cut out for time.
  • The music of this song is heard in Toy Story 3, after Buzz gets crushed by a TV.
