Lyrics

Oh, well I'm the kind of guy who will never settle down.
Where pretty girls are well you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer

I roam around around around around
Well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm happy as a clown
Ah with my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere (Yeah)

Well, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place
I roam from town to town
And when I find myself
Well uh fallin' for some girl
I hop right over the fence
And my tail begins to twirl
Yeah, I'm the wanderer
Oh, the wanderer

I roam around around around around
Oh, they call me the wanderer yeah the wanderer
I roam around around around around
Hey they call me the wanderer yeah, the wanderer
I roam around

Original 1961 version

Oh well, I'm the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are well, you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer

I roam around, around, around
Oh well, there's Flo on my left and there's Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl with that I'll be with tonight
And when she asks me, which one I love the best?
I tear open my shirt and I show her Rosie on my chest
'Cause I'm the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer

I roam around, around, around
Oh well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
A-with my two fists of iron and I'm going nowhere
I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and ride around the world
Yeah I'm the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer

I roam around, around, around
Lets roam I’m letting go
(Yeah)
Oh yeah, I'm the type of guy that likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world
Yeah, 'cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer

I roam around, around, around
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer

I roam around, around, around
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
