"Wanderlust" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
Light out wanderlust
Head us out to sea
Captain says there'll be a bust
This one's not for me

Take us from the dark
Out where we can see
Captain's out to make his mark
This one's not to be

Light out wanderlust
Help us to be free
Light out wanderlust
Do it just for me
Wanderlust

Oh where did I, go wrong my love?
What petty crime was I found guilty of?
What better time to find a brand new day?
Oh wanderlust away

Light out wanderlust
Help us to be free
Light out wanderlust
Do it just for me
Wanderlust

Captain's out to make his mark
This one's not to be

Light out wanderlust
Head us out to sea
Captain says there'll be a bust
This one's not for me

Dropping a line
Maybe this time
It's wanderlust for me

    General CommentThis is one of my all time favorite songs. I love to put on a good pair of headphones, turn off the lights, and crank up the volume. I love this song.

    General Commentaccording to allmusic.com, this song is about the SECOND time he was caught with weed in an airport, some time in the late '70s.

    General CommentI read once that this was about the captain of a boat that Paul hired called Wanderlust. He wasn't keen on Paul chonging massive spliffs on board as Paul had famously been incarcerated for drug offences.
