Lyrics

We were watching Walker Texas Ranger
In a cheap hotel in Memphis
We were eating cup-o-noodle
I was wearing your blue underpants

And the lady in the lobby
Was trying to watch the Fox TV
While she stared as us suspiciously
And you wanted to buy a bb gun

And you said
Some people like to go to church every Sunday
And watch their big TVs
They’re riding on a cart to walmart
Praying god will set them free

But there’s so much more in this big old world
So much more to see
Just keep ahold of the reins now baby
Because right now we are free
To do, to be
To do-be do-be do-be do-be do-be-do-be do

We’re a couple catholic gypsy roamers
Guitars and cars and telephoners
You read me Kafka on your cell phone
Wrangle, ride, and rope me in so strong

Baby stay the night (3x)
Lets do, and be, and do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do-be-do

When we finally checked out of our hotel home
You kissed me hard so everyone would know
And drove your car to San Francisco
And I wanted to go away with you.

And I know
Some people have to go to work on the week days
I hope their banks get big
There's traffic lanes, 401ks
Marriage and Miller Lite

But there’s so much more in this big old world
So much more to see
So just keep ahold of the reins now baby
Because right now we are free
To do, to be, to do-be, do-be, do-be
