Wonderlust King

by Gogol Bordello

/ Am F C E / :

Back in the day yo as we learned
A man was not considered to be
    Considered to be fully grown
Has he not gone beyond the hills
Has he not crossed the seven seas
    Yeah, seven seas at least! 

Now all them jokers kept around
Just like the scarecrows in hometown
    Yeah, scarecrows in hometown
From screen to screen they're traveling
But I'm a wonderlust king

I stay on the run
Let me out
Let me be gone
In the world's
Beat up road sign
I saw new
History of time
New history of time!
Da da da da da da da da da da da daow!
Da da ....

Through Siberian woods
Breaking up their neck 
    Breaking up their neck!
Chinese moving in
Building discotheques
    Yeah building discotheques!
Trans-Siberian sex toys and whatnot
    Yeah, and why not?
Well at least it's something different
From what they got
In every other airport

Ja ne evrei, no koje-chto pohozge
Sovrat ne dast ni Yura ni Seryozga!
Simple because I'm not a total gadjo
Da ja shut, ja tziratch, nu tak stozge?

I traveled the world
Looking for understanding
Of the times that we live in
Hunting and gathering first hand information
Challenging definitions of sin

I traveled the world
Looking for lovers
Of the ultimate beauty
But never settled in 

Hai dee a hai dee....
I'm Wonderlust King! 


{over top of da da da da}
And presidents
And billionaires
And generals
They'll never know
What I have owned!
What I have owned... 
Ha dee a ha dee...
I'm a wonderlust king!
