Sometimes I imagine myself as a drifter
Seeker of fortunes, connoisseur of great wines
Dashing through meadows of yellow and green
Trying to catch the impossible dream
Leaving the straight life behind

Sometimes my thoughts may find me in Mexico
Drinking tequila, going out of my mind
Having a ball on a couple of bob
Treating the ladies to corn on the cob
Leaving the straight life behind

Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear
She comes to me softly with crackers and beer
Winking and blinking and blowing in my ear
Running away with my mind

It's great to be in love
I'm not really thinking of
Leaving the straight life behind
I'm just playing a game in my mind

Do do do do do...

Once in a while, in my mind I go bumming
Going to nowhere, with no worry of time
Running along chasing after a train
Humming a song in the sun and the rain
Leaving the straight life behind

I can just see me on a tropical island
Riding the surf and drinking coconut wine
Having me fun with golden girls in the sand
Chasing the sun through an innocent land
Leaving the straight life behind

Suddenly all my silly thoughts disappear
She comes to me softly with crackers and beer
Winking and blinking and blowing in my ear
Running away with my mind

It's great to be in love
I'm not really thinking of
Leaving the straight life behind
I'm just playing a game in my mind

Do do do do do...
