  • I like digging holes and hiding things inside them
    When I'll grow old, I hope I won't forget to find them
    'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

    I build a home and wait for someone to tear it down
    Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
    'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

    And a thousand times I've seen this road
    A thousand times

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

    I like standing still, but that's just a wishful plan
    Ask me where I come from, I'll say a different land
    But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

    I count gates and numbers, then play the guessing game
    It's just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
    But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

    And a thousand times I've seen this road
    A thousand times

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

    I like digging holes
    Hiding things inside them
    When I'll grow old
    I won't forget to find them
    I like digging holes
    Hiding things inside them
    When I'll grow old
    I won't forget to find them
    I've got no roots
    No roots

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
    I've got no roots uh uh uh uh Writer/s: Nicolas Rebscher, Alice Merton
