"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 Buzz crestfallen due to the fact that he is a toy. Dejected, Buzz walks out of the room and down the hallway of Sid's house. Passing the top of the stairwell, 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, Buzz raises his head, determination in face, closes his wrist communicator as to deny its fine print of "MADE IN CHINA" 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, Buzz finds himself falling down the stairs, away from the window, until he crashes onto the steps and lands on the entryway floor. Buzz 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 be,
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.
