"Sinking Ships" is a song by the Bee Gees, released as the B-side of "Words" in January 1968. It was written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb and produced by Robert Stigwood and the Bee Gees. The song was unusual for the group in that it featured solo vocal lines from all three Gibb brothers. It was reissued in Germany in 1987. Both tracks were released as a double A in Germany, Netherlands, Japan and France.
The song's structure is a similar to that of "Horizontal", with three verses and a false fade at the end of the verse two.
