In a Foreign Land

Ray Davies, released on Misfits, © Davray Music Ltd. 1978

.

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 decided to dash far away

far away, far away to a foreign land

Here I am, here I am, here I am in a foreign land

.

Goodbye to all of the rich man's daughters

Goodbye to my debts now I'm 'way cross 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, far away in a foreign land

.

Goodbye champagne and caviar set

I wanna slum and drink all 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
