When I was an astronaut I didn't take my boots,
When I was a coal miner I didn't know the news,
When I was a record store I didn't have the blues,
I travel light and that's the life for me.

He doesn't care where else he goes,
He's not gonna take any extra clothes
or extra shoes to hide his feet
The ground is dirt, the dirt is sweet


When I go Londontown I'll stand under a rock,
Until I know all the time it takes to pack a clock,
Then I'll flip it over, close the key, and swallow the lock.
I travel light and that's the life for me.

He doesn't take his spoon or fork,
He's seen too many eating in New York,
He'll use his hands to pick and eat,
The fruit he finds, he'll find it sweet


[whistles]

When I was a waitress, I gave away my tips
When I was a call-girl, I gave away my hips
When I ran the kissing booth, I gave away my lips,
I travel light and that's the life for me


She lives a life like abandoned wind
Elemental wife, fortune is her friend,
I smile on a planet and a river made of light,
she's just a pebble on a waterfall tonight

When i go to Boston I stand around in jeans
And save the cash I'll need (?) by selling black-market baked beans
Denim's what I like to wear and has durable seams
I travel light and that's the life for me

She just a genious without a thinking cap
She doesn't pay the rent, she's funny like that
I don't know what she's on, she's here and gone
Rides a welcome mat on a jungle cat

[more whistles]

Both:
Fur's and silver chairs and shiny things are just a fuss
We'll eat all peanuts that we steal from the circus
We'll count the stars and go to sleep under the bus
We'll travel light and that's the life for us (x a bunch)

This song is so great. I love the lyrics. It reminds me of a recent trip to Flamingo Las Vegas, had the song on repeat the whole time. We played it at the Las Vegas Pools too.

How would I go about travelling the world? How would I go about getting a job travelling the world, you know for a programme or something about world cultures...? Where a tv company pays you to travel and comment and show everybody the world like on Globe Trekker!

I can see my lucky starts, when I gaze into your eyes.
Twilight’s shadows hold us tenderly.


It’s so easy to imagine, you here by my side
as I turn out the lights and fall to sleep.

I can see me being with you, for the rest of my life.
Two hearts, one love.
