World Weary

  • 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 Writer/s: NOEL COWARD
