"Wandering Boy" as written by and Randy Newman....
Thank you for the party
I was glad we came
I'm the only from the family to make it
But I know they'd say the same
I came here with my father
And I brought my wife
Three sons, a daughter
And a last baby boy
A little caboose we call the light of our life
And that's who I'm waiting for

Where is my wandering boy tonight?
Where is my wandering boy?
If you see him, push him towards the light
Where is my wandering boy?

He went over that harbor there
When he was five years old
Laughing like a maniac
Shining in the sun like gold
He was afraid of nothing then
He was loved by everyone
I see it clear as I see you
That day there in the sun

I hope he's warm and I hope he's dry
And that a strangers eye is a friendly eye
And I hope he has someone close by his side
And I hope that he'll come home

Where is my wandering boy tonight?
Where is my wandering boy?
If you see him, tell him everything is alright
Push him towards the light
Where is my wandering boy?
