Wild one, won't you please come home? You've been away too long, will you We need you home, we need you near Come back wild one, will you?
How can we live without your love? You know that could kill you How can we carry on When you are gone, my wild one
So you go your way wild one I'll try and follow And if you change your mind I will be waiting here for you tomorrow
For I would beg for you I would steal and I would borrow I'd do anything, anything at all To end this sorrow
Wild one The gypsies warned of the danger You can laugh and joke with friends But don't you ever talk to strangers
Although their offers may be sweet And I'd bet and I would wager Away you'll stray and never come back To those who love and made you

Cupparosielee from W YorkshireThe first verse seems to be about the soldiers off to war as t'others said. Second and third verses written as though they could be a spurned love but will not give up hope
Frank from DublinYes, it's about the Flight of The Wild Geese and Ireland subsequently being leaderless, hence the tone of despair: "...how can we carry on when you are gone, my Wild One.."
Roddie from Waterford, IrelandThe Song is based on the Wild Geese. Philip had a huge interest in Irish history
The Flight of the Wild Geese refers to the departure of an Irish Jacobite army under the command of Patrick Sarsfield from Ireland to France, as agreed in the Treaty of Limerick on October 3, 1691, following the end of the Williamite War in Ireland. More broadly, the term "Wild Geese" is used in Irish history to refer to Irish soldiers who left to serve in continental European armies in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Mickey D. from Fremont, CaI wonder what the chorus lyrics are...
Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" spent 24 weeks on top of the country chart- the most ever until Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" was #1 for 34 weeks. The record was previously held by Eddy Arnold's "I'll Hold You in My Heart (1947-48), Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" (1950-51) and Webb Pierce's "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955), which each led for 21 weeks.
