Leo Sayer and Les Davidson
Rambling 'round your city streets
I feel no earth beneath my feet
And I feel my life

Is crumbling into, into the sea
But I can't swim
Three thousand miles
So all I have is lonely nights

I'm an Englishman
Lost in the U.S.A
And it's a long way back home
Such a long way back home

And I'm wondering
Where am I gonna go
Line's dead -- operator's gone
And now the fear is coming on

And I hear my love
Wondering where have I gone
So I'm gambling bucks for pounds
Yeah, but lady luck

Just won't come around
For an Englishman
Who is stuck in the U.S.A
And it's a long way back home

Such a long way back home
And I'm wondering
Will I ever get away
So here I am and there are you

Where wishful thoughts
Don't serve no use
And all the worrying in the world
Won't pull me through

So I think of love that
Might have been
And an airline ticket
That's like a dream

For an Englishman
Who is lost in the U.S.A
Such a long way back home
Such a long way back home

And I'm wondering
Will I ever get to go
And I'm waiting for you
To take me home
