"The Wanderer" as written by and Ernie Maresca....
Oh well I'm the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are well, you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around

Oh well there's Flo on my left and there's Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl with that I'll be with tonight
And when she asks me which one I love the best
I tear open my shirt I got Rosie on my chest
'Cause I'm the wanderer yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around

Oh well I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
'Til I'm as happy as a clown
With my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere

I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl, yeah
I hop right into that car of mine and ride around the world
Yeah I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around, let's go

Oh yeah I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and ride around the world
'Cause I'm a wanderer, yeah a wanderer
I roam around around around, around, around
'Cause I'm a wanderer, yeah a wanderer
I roam around around around, aroundm around

    This song kinda of sums up the first 30 years of my life! I think my take on the lyrics below is correct..


    Ohh - well I'm the type of guy
    Who will never settle down
    Where pretty girls are
    Well you know that I'm around

    I kiss 'em and I love 'em
    'Coz to me there all the same
    I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em
    They don't even know my name

    They call me "the Wanderer"
    Yeh - "The Wanderer"
    I roam around, around, around, around

    Ohh - well there's Flo on my left arm
    and there's Mary on my right
    And Janie is the girl
    Well that I'll be with tonight-a

    And when she asks me
    Which one I love the best-a?
    I tear open my shirt
    and show her Rosie on my chest

    'Coz I'm a wanderer
    Yeh - "The Wanderer"
    I roam around, around, around, around

    Oh - Well I roam from town to town
    I go through life without a care
    And I'm as happy as a clown
    With my two fists of iron
    but I'm going nowhere

    Oh - yeh I'm the type of guy
    that likes to roam around
    I'm never in one place
    I roam from town to town

    And when I find myself
    Falling for some girl
    Yeh - I hope right in that car of mine
    I drive around the world

    Yeh - I'm a wanderer
    Yeh - a wanderer
    I roam around, around, around, around...yeh

    INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

    Oh - yeh I'm the type of guy
    that likes to roam around
    I'm never in one place
    I roam from town to town

    When I find myself
    Falling for some girl
    Yeh - I hop right in that car of mine..
    ...Drive around the world

    'Coz I'm a wanderer
    Yeh - a wanderer
    I roam around, around, around, around,around

    'Coz I'm a wanderer
    Yeh - a wanderer
    I roam around, around, around, around, around, around (fade)
