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
