I’ve been told not to follow the beaten track,
To make your own path in life.
Unfortunately, I’m no 4X4
And when the tarmac is cold and unforgiving
You can forgive a man who makes an easy living.
A simple job, A simple life
With time for children and time for my wife.
Yeah, that sounds nice.
I wasn’t built to go adventuring
And a concrete jungle would blunt a machete.
I think I’ll follow the road.
