Manhattan TransferForeign Affair

When traveling abroad in the continental style It's my belief that one must attempt to be discreet And subsequently bear in mind your transient position Allows you a perspective that's unique Though you'll find your itinerary's a blessing and a curse Your wanderlust won't let you settle down And you wonder how you ever fathomed that you'd be content To stay within the city limits of a small midwestern town Most vagabonds I knowed don't ever want to find the culprit That remains the object of their long relentless quest The obsession's in the chasing and not the apprehending The pursuit you see and never the arrest Without fear or contradiction Bon Voyage is often hollered In conjunction with a handkerchief from shore By a girl that drives a Rambler and furthermore Is overly concerned that she won't see him anymore Planes and trains and boats and buses Characteristically evoke a common attitude of blue Unless you have a suitcase and a ticket and a passport And the cargo that they're carrying is you A foreign affair juxtaposed with a stateside And domestically approved romantic fancy Is mysteriously attractive due to circumstances knowing I will only be parlayed into a memory © 2018
