  • I hear a wind
    Whistling air
    Whispering
    In my ear

    Boy Mercury shooting through every degree
    Oh girl dancing down those dirty and dusty trails
    Take it hip to hip, rocket through the wilderness
    Around the world the trip begins with a kiss

    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without wings, without wheels
    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without anything but the love we feel

    Skip the airstrip to the sunset, yeah
    Ride the arrow to the target, one
    Take it hip to hip, rock it through the wilderness
    Around the world the trip begins with a kiss

    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without wings, without wheels
    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without anything but the love we feel

    Fly the great big sky
    See the great big sea
    Kick through continents
    Busting boundaries
    Take it hip to hip, rocket through the wilderness
    Around the world the trip begins with a kiss

    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without wings, without wheels
    Roam if you want to
    Roam around the world
    Roam if you want to
    Without anything but the love we feel

    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness
    Take it hip to hip
    Rocket through the wilderness Writer/s: CINDY WILSON, FRED SCHNEIDER, KATE PIERSON, KEITH STRICKLAND, ROBERT WALDROP

  • Adam- : Kane from AustraliaIs about the holy see . A kiss on the ground.
  • Fly1965 from Aurora, ColoradoI swear this song is about something a little more erotic than travel. Hip to hip, rocking through the wilderness? A banana chasing a donut? LOL But okay. Whatever they say.
  • Chris from Germany One of my favorite songs by THE B52s
    awesome song.
    Was their second consecutive Top 3 Hit in the USA reaching #3. It gained GOLD certification for 500,000 sold copies

    i grew up with the band as a child and knowing them from FLINTSTONES Movie but their 1989 album COSMIC THING is great
