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!
