Well, I just got back and I wish I never leave now (where'd you go?)
Who that Martian arrival at the airport yeah? (where'd you go?)
How many local dollars for a local anesthetic? (where'd you go?)
The Johnney on the corner was very sympathetic (where'd you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe european home
Don't wanna go back there

Wasn't I lucky? Wouldn't it be lovely (where'd you go?)
Send us all cards, have a laying in on Sunday (where'd you go?)
I was there for two weeks so how come I never tell now (where'd you go?)
That natty dread drinks at the Sheraton Hotel? (where'd you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don’t wanna go back there again

Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah

They got the sun and they got the palm trees (where'd you go?)
They got the weed and they got the taxis (where'd you go?)
Whoah, the harder they come the home of old bluebeat (where'd you go?)
I'd stay and be a tourist, I can't take the gunplay (where'd you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
And sitting here in my safe European home
Don’t wanna go back there again
Again

What?
