Lyrics

So you think you’re a Romeo, playing a part in a picture-show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home.

You’re the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you’re feeling good?
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you’re part of the scenery
All the greenery is comin’ down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you’re part of the furniture
Oh, it’s peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights, you take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home.

You never see what you want to see; forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home.

When you’re up on the stage, it’s so unbelievable
Oh, unforgettable, how they adore you
But then your wife seems to think you’re losing your sanity,
Oh, calamity, is there no way out?

Does it feel that your life’s become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could have been
Oh, what might have been
If you’d had
more
time.

So, when the day comes to settle down, who’s to blame if you’re not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home.

 

Supertramp, motherfuckers.
