I want to go back to Cartagena
I wanna sail to the south right away
I need to hear '
Tell me if you haven't noticed, you're wasting away

I want to get lost in old Havana
I long to walk down the wide Malecon
Quiero hablar con los Pescadores '
And ride in a '56 Caddy right in the dawn

What am I doing, deja-vu'ing
Just singing and swearing and wearing my traveling clothes
What am I saying, can't imagine not playing
Just show me the way to the bar and a nomad who knows

I have to get back to '
The southern constellations are calling to me
I need to dance a midnight tango, hear some jango
There's a boat waiting there bound for the far Tasman Sea

I want to go back to Carueso
Back where they sing the sun into the sea
I want to dance with circus gypsies, talk with hippies
Where the past and the future still walk down the same sandy street

The importance of elsewhere still so important to me
Yes, the importance of elsewhere still so important to me
I want to go back to Cartagena
