When I'm feeling weary and blue, I'm only too Glad to be left alone Dreaming of a place in the sun when day is done far from a telephone
Hardly ever see the sky Buildings seem to grow so high
give me somewhere peaceful and grand where all the land slumbers in monotone
I'm world weary living in a great big town I find it so dreary so dreary everything looks grey or brown I want an ocean blue great big trees bird's eye view of the Pyrenees I wanna watch the moon rise up see the great red sun go down watching clouds go by through a windy sky fascinates me but if i do it in the street every cop I meet simply hates me Bc I'm World Weary World Weary tired of all these jumping jacks I wanna get right back to nature and relax
I'm world weary living in a great big town I find it so dreary, so dreary I want a horse and plow, chickens too just one cow with a wistful moo A country where the verb ""to work"" becomes a most improper noun I can hardly wait till i see the great open spaces my loving friends will not be there I'm so sick of their darn fool faces because I'm world weary I could kiss the railroad tracks I wanna get right back to nature assume a horizontal stature
