  • I do what I want
    And I'll do what I like
    When I make a million
    I'll be out of sight
    I'll do what I want
    And I'll do what I please
    I'll laugh in your face
    When you beg on your knees

    Ooh, ooh yeah
    There's got to be a better way
    Ooh, and I don't care
    I know that when I

    [Chorus: x2]
    Live in the country
    If I live in the country
    Live in the country
    I'll find another way
    Live in the country
    To get rich, live in the country
    Live in the country
    I know I'll be OK

    Every day is a drag
    Getting caught in the rat race
    You don't wanna be on the street
    And every night when I crash
    You can see it in my face
    I look like I'm dead on my feet

    So I'm folding my cash
    Gonna live in the country
    Cause that's what I plan to do
    Cause the air's never bad
    When you live in the country
    The sky is always blue

    Ooh, ooh yeah
    There's got to be a better way
    Ooh, and I don't care
    I know that when I

    [Chorus: x2]

    [Repeat: x8]
    Live in the country

    I want the ducks, and a lake, and a family portrait
    A pipe and a dog at my feet
    I want a stall at the fete selling strawberry shortcake
    And walls that are very discrete
    And when my dull city friends are slum it back in their bedsits
    I'll live like a King every day
    I'll be out of my head but they'll say I'm eccentric
    And look the other way
    I know that when I
