Lyrics

"Show me the way to go home"

 

Verse 1
I have watched the days, melt and fade away
Ten thousand times or more
And I have found the answers
In the sand upon the shore

 

Chorus 1
No matter where I roam
Over land or sea or foam
And you will always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home

 

Verse 2
I've sat here in the sun, and listened to everyone
On the questions that they pose
And I have found the answers
In the petals of a rose

 

Chorus 1

 

Chorus 2
Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head

 

Chorus 1

 

Verse 3
I've watched you come and go, and I've learned enough to know
There's nothing left to see
And in my life I've loved a girl
And I know that she loved me

 

Chorus 1

Chorus 2

Chorus 1

 

Ending
And you will always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home
Show me the way to go home
Show me the way to go home
