Kinks – In A Foreign Land lyrics

It was a matter of fact that when I paid all my tax
I held my world in the palm of my hand
And all of my debts were causing me to defect
To a land of bananas and sand
So I ran, yes I ran, yes I ran to a foreign land
Here I am, here I am
Here I am in a foreign land

I'm so glad we made it
I thought we'd never land
I grabbed all my cash
And decided to dash far away
Far away, far away to a foreign land
Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land

Goodbye to all of the rich man's daughters
Goodbye to my debts now I'm 'way cross the water
Far away, far away in a foreign land
Here I am, here I am here I am in a foreign land

La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Please tell my mother and all my ex-lovers
That I've finally made the grade

Please tell my debtors and the money collectors
That all of my bills will be paid some day
I'm away, I'm away, far away in a foreign land

Goodbye champagne and caviar set
I want to slum and drink all the rum I can get
I'm away, I'm away in a foreign land
Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land
But I'm all out of my jack and I can't go back
I'm away, far away, far away in a foreign land

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
