From Rochdale to Ocho Rios
From Ocho Rios to Dorking
From Dorking its back to Rochdale
From Rochdale to Ocho Rios

You spend half your life in transit
But that's just the way God plans it
Pack a shirt and some fresh pajamas
That's all you need

Tried to get a flight out to San Juan
But Air Jamaica don't fly on Sunday
Gotta get a flight out to San Juan
Because I want to see the Mama and the Papa

When I look into your blue eyes
I bend the truth but I never tell you lies
I need my lover, I need your care
Understandings not enough to make it fair

From Rochdale to Ocho Rios
From Ocho Rios to Dorking
From Dorking its back to Rochdale
From Rochdale to Ocho Rios

Asleep in a stream of sunlight
Awake in a dream at midnight
I'm rushing to wait for jumbo
Oh where am I now

Tried to get a flight out to San Juan
But Air Jamaica don't fly on Sunday
Gotta get a flight out to San Juan
Because I want to see the Mama and the Papa

A dressing room so far from home
A corridor with a broken telephone
I want to call but I got to go
The curtains up and it's time to do the show

Show time!

I just got in to the city
Yeah, it's so insane
But the man with the suitcase
is on the road again

Tried to get a flight out to San Juan
But Air Jamaica don't fly on Sunday
Gotta get a flight out to San Juan
Because I want to see the Mama and the Papa

Asleep in a stream of sunlight
Awake in a dream at midnight
I'm rushing to wait for jumbo
Oh where am I now

You spend half your life in transit
But that's just the way God plans it
Pack a shirt and some fresh pajamas
That's all you need

Everybody sing!
From Rochdale to Ocho Rios
From Ocho Rios to Dorking
From Dorking its back to Rochdale
Oh where are we now
