  • My head is spinning round
    My heart is in my shoes, yeah
    I went and set the Thames on fire, oh
    Now I must come back down
    She's laughing in her sleeve, boys
    I can feel it in my bones
    Oh, but anywhere, anywhere I'm gonna lay my head
    Oh, I'm gonna call my home

    Well, I see that the world is upside-down
    Seems that my pockets were filled up with gold
    And now the clouds, Well they've covered everything over
    And the wind is blowing cold
    Well, I don't need anybody
    Because I learned, I learned to be alone
    Well, I said anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I lay my head, boys
    Well, I'm gonna call my home Writer/s: THOMAS ALAN WAITS
