"Never Did No Wandering" as written by Michael John Mckean and Harry Shearer....
Wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'

My mother was the cold north wind
My daddy was the son
Of a railroad man from west of Hell
Where the trains don't even run

Never heard the whistle of a lonesome freight
Or the singin' of its drivin' wheel
No, I...

Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin' after all

They say the highway's just one big road
And it goes from here to there
And they say you carry a heavy load
When you're rollin' down the line somewhere

Never seen the dance of the telephone poles
As they go whizzin' by

Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin' after all

Never did no wanderin' high
Never did no wanderin' low

A sailor's life is the life for him
But it never was for me
And I never soared where the hawk may soar
Or see what the hawk may see
(What the hawk may see...)

Never hiked to Heaven on a mountain trail
Never rode on a river's rage
(Ragin'!)

Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin' after all
(Easy now)
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin'
Never did no wanderin' after all
(No, I...)
Never did no wanderin' after all
