Never Settle Down

upside.jpgJim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: AROUND/DOWN/SIDEWAYS/UP

Jack told me which song to feature today! He has chosen a great song! However, I am going to relegate his first choice to my second choice. So if later today nobody else has featured Jack’s choice, I will give it a spin. Jack loves music, and he thinks SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY is a great idea – he is right isn’t he! We love it! It’s great that Jim is providing us with some fabulous themes with a huge array of musical choice available for us to take our pick.

Instead of obeying Jack, I am going to feature a song that I thought could have also fitted in with another recent theme (I think it was  DRIFTER/VAGABOND?) Although, I would have a huge problem with the kind of man the song describes, the song itself just makes me laugh. I love it! I often find myself singing it just to amuse myself.

So ignore that the song makes the singer sound like a total sleazoid – just tap your feet and sing along to “The Wanderer” – as he tells us without any shame that he roams around around around, around!

Oh, well, I’m the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well, you know that I’m around
I kiss ’em and I love ’em ’cause to me they’re all the same
I hug ’em and I squeeze ’em they don’t even know my name

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh, well, there’s Flo on my left and there’s Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl, well, that I’ll be with tonight
And when she asks me, which one I love the best?
I tear open my shirt and I show her “Rosie” on my chest

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh, well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I’m as happy as a clown
I with my two fists of iron but I’m going nowhere

I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin’ for some girl
Yeah, I hop right into that car of mine, I drive around the world

Yeah I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh yeah, I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin’ for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Yeah, I’m the wanderer
Yeah, I’m a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

They call me the wanderer
Yeah, I’m a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around
