When I was an astronaut I didn't take my boots, When I was a coal miner I didn't know the news, When I was a record store I didn't have the blues, I travel light and that's the life for me. He doesn't care where else he goes, He's not gonna take any extra clothes or extra shoes to hide his feet The ground is dirt, the dirt is sweet When I go Londontown I'll stand under a rock, Until I know all the time it takes to pack a clock, Then I'll flip it over, close the key, and swallow the lock. I travel light and that's the life for me. He doesn't take his spoon or fork, He's seen too many eating in New York, He'll use his hands to pick and eat, The fruit he finds, he'll find it sweet When I was a waitress, I gave away my tips When I was a call-girl, I gave away my hips When I ran the kissing booth, I gave away my lips, I travel light and that's the life for me She lives a life like abandoned wind Elemental wife, fortune is her friend, I smile on a planet and a river made of light, she's just a pebble on a waterfall tonight When i go to Boston I stand around in jeans And save the cash for Levi’s by selling black-market baked beans Denim's what I like to wear it has durable seams I travel light and that's the life for me She just a genius without a thinking cap She never pays the rent, she's funny like that I don't know what she's on, she's here and gone Rides a welcome mat on a jungle cat Fur's and silver chairs and shiny things are just a fuss We'll eat all peanuts that we steal from the circus We'll count the all stars and go to sleep under the bus We'll travel light and that's the life for us We'll travel light and that's the life for us We'll travel light and that's the life for us
