Lyrics

When I was an astronaut, I didn't take my boots
When I was a coal-miner, I didn't know the news
When I ran a record store, Ididn't have the blues
I travel light and thats the life for me.

He doesn't care where else he goes
He's not gonna take any extra clothes
Or extra shoes to hide his feet
The ground is dirt, the dirt is sweet.

When I go to London-town I'll stand under a rock
Until I know all the time it takes to pack a clock
The I'll flip it over, close the key, swallow the lock
I travel light and that's the life for me.

He doesn't take his spoon or fork
He's seen to many eating in New York
He'll use his hands to pick and eat
The fruit he finds, he'll find it sweer.

When I was a waitress, I gave away my tips
When I was a call-girl, I gave away my hips
When I ran the kissing-booth, I gave away my lips
I travel light and that's the life for me.

She lives a life like abandoned wind
Elemental wife, fortune's her friend
A smile on a river made of light
She's just a pebble on waterfall tonight

When I go to Boston, I'll stand around in jeans
And save the cash to leave by selling black-marcket baked beans
Denim's what I like to wear, it has durable seams
I travel light and that's the life for me.

She's just a genius without a thinking cap
'Never pays the rent, she's funny like that
I don't know what she's on, she's here and gone
Rides a welcome mat on a jungle cat.

Furs and sofa chairs and shiny things are just a fuss
We'll eat all the peanuts that we steal from the circus
We'll count all the stars and go to sleep under the bus
We'll travel light and that's the life for us
We'll travel light and that's the life for us
We'll travel light and that's the life for us
We'll travel light and that's the life for us.
