Kinks, The - In A Foreign Land Lyrics



It was a matter of fact that when I paid all my tax
I held my world in the palm of my hand
And all of my debts were causing me to defect
To a land of bananas and sand
So I ran, yes I ran, yes I ran to a foreign land
Here I am, here I am
Here I am in a foreign land

I'm so glad we made it
I thought we'd never land
I grabbed all my cash
And I decided to dash far away
Far away, far away in a foreign land
Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land

Goodbye to all of the rich men's daughters
Goodbye to my debts now I'm way across the water
Far away, far away in a foreign land
Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land

La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Please tell my mother and all my ex-lovers
That I've finally made the grade

Please tell my debtors and the money collectors
That all of my bills will be paid some day
I'm away, I'm away in a foreign land

Goodbye champagne and the caviar set
I wanna slum and drink all of the rum I can get
I'm away, I'm away in a foreign land
Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land
But I'm all out of my jack and I can't go back
I'm away, far away, far away in a foreign land

La la la la la la
La la la la la la

    Joyful little ditty about unhappiness with tax system. 'Goodbye to the champagne and the caviar set. I wanna slum and drink all of the rum I can get.' That always does it for me. Great bass work by Andy Pyle or whomever played on it. Great expressive vocals, harmony and backing, some of which are yelled at the listener.
