  • Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

    The door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
    Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up

    And you will go to Mykonos
    With a vision of a gentle coast
    And a sun to maybe dissipate
    Shadows of the mess you made

    Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

    Pallid animals in the snow-tipped pines I find
    Hatching from the seed of your thin mind all night

    And you will go to Mykonos
    With a vision of a gentle coast
    And a sun to maybe dissipate
    Shadows of the mess you made

    Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Brother, you don't need to turn me away
    I was waiting down at the ancient gate

    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today

    I remember how they took you down
    As the winter turned the meadow brown

    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today

    When out walking, brother, don't you forget
    It ain't often that you'll ever find a friend

    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today
    You go
    Wherever you go today
    You go today Writer/s: Robin Noel Pecknold
