I have not a girl that's mine
I have not a friend
I have not got a place to live
Indeed it seems the end
But it ain't for me
As I've got myself which matters most
Throughout the life I lead

I have not a penny in my pocket and if soon
I should be found just as badly broken
I won't gloom
Cos it ain't me
As I've got myself which matters most
Throughout the life I lead

I have wandered into many a town
And have often been tempted to settle down
Yet if I did I'm sure I'd find
I'd always change my mind
So I'll keep right ahead with what I'm doing

Although I have no luxuries
My mind is quite at ease
It may seem medieval yet it's all that my heart pleads
And it ain't for me
Cos I've got myself which matters most
Throughout the life I lead
