I met a little girl with big blue eyes and ruby lips.
She looked so cute in her long black boots up to her hips.
She said, "Why don't you come home with me, it'll be a lovely trip
'Cause I have got some very lovely whips."
I said, "Whips?"
She said, "Whips!"
I said...
"I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' THAT way.
I don't know where my boat is rowin'
But I KNOW it ain't rowin' that way.
I don't know where the wind is blowin'
Or the sea is flowin' or the grass is growin'
And I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' that way."
I was sittin' around with my head on the ground
And my feet tucked under my arm
Thinkin' to myself how the world had just lost all its charm
Then my baby said, "If you want some kicks that won't do you no harm...
Why, simply stick this needle into your arm."
I said, "Insulin?"
She said, "No."
I said...
"I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' THAT way.
I don't know where my boat is rowin'
But I KNOW it ain't rowin' that way.
I don't know where the wind is blowin'
Or the sea is flowin' or the grass is growin'
And I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' that way."
So I went to a bar to get myself a little bit of joie de vivre.
Told everybody how my baby treats me miserably.
There was a fellah there with bleached-blond hair
Gave me a lot of sympathy.
He said, "Poor thing. You can come and live with ME."
I said, "Live with thee?"
He said, "Yes, live with me and we'll be WE."
I said...
"I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' THAT way.
I don't know where my boat is rowin'
But I KNOW it ain't rowin' that way.
I don't know where the wind is blowin'
Or the sea is flowin' or the grass is growin'
And I don't know which way I'm goin'
But I KNOW I ain't goin' that way."
