Lyrics

Lyrics transcription by Matt Westacott (thanks Matt!)

People from bad homes
Don't have time
To look things over
Make up their minds
People from good homes
Don't have the minds
To care for bad homes
Don't have the time

Home is the mainland(?)
Can't take the blame
'Cause people have notions
To play out this game
Just stand on your own line
Stand high above
'Cause people have caution
And trouble to love

Me, I've got no home
Just Main street and wine(?)
No-one to hustle
No-one to jive
Me and my prospects
Just having a ball
Having the best time
Or nothing at all

Home is the mainland(?)
Can't take the blame
'Cause people have notions
To play out this game
Just stand on your own line
Stand high above
'Cause people have caution
And trouble to love

Home is the mainland(?)
Can't take the blame
'Cause people have notions
To play out this game
Just stand on your own line
Stand high above
'Cause people have caution
And trouble to love
