Verse 1

DRamadan is over, the Gnew moon's shown her face, I'm Ahalf way around the planet in a Gmost Aunlikely Dplace. Following my song line past Gbamboo shacks and shops, BeAhind the chimney packed like sardines with Gbananas Apiled on Dtop. I've ran away from politics that's Gtoo bizarre at home, The Away I flew too in the blue, maybe GAmsterAdam or DRome. Awakened by a stewardess with GSpain somewhere below, On the Athreshold of adventure, God I Gdo love Athis job Dso. So while I Gmake my Dmove on the Abig board Dgame, Up and Gdown that Spanish Dhighway, some Athings remain the Dsame, GGirls meet Dboys and Aboys tease Bmgirls, I'm Gheadin' out this Dmorning for theGfar Aside of the Dworld.

Verse 2

Oh I believe in song lines, Gobvious and not, I've Aridden them like camels to some Gmost Apeculiar Dspots. They run across the oceans, through Gmountains and saloons, ToAnight out to the desert where I Gsit aAtop this Ddune. I was destined for this vantage point, Gthough so far from the sea, I've Alived it in the pages from GSaint-AEquerDry. From Paris to Tunisia, CasaGblanca to Dakar, I was Ariding long before I flew through the Gwind and Asand and Dstars. GCaraDvan, Aride that Dhump, and GTimbukAtu's a Ajillion Dbumps GSleeping bags and Dbattle flags are Acoiled and Bmfurled GThat's the way you Dtravel to the Gfar Aside of the Dworld!

Verse 3

A Sunset framed by lightening bolts burns a lasting memory And a string of tiny twinkling lights adorn the sausage tree. While the embers from the log fire flicker, fly, and twirl Then drift off toward the cosmos from the Far Side of the World. Well it's Christmas and my birthday and so to that extent The Masai not the wise men are circling my tent. I teach them how to play guitar, They show me how to dance We have rum from the Caribbean, and Burgundy from France. New Year's Eve in Zanzibar with Babu and his boys High up on the rooftop you can relish all the noise. They are dancing on the tables people bouncing like gazelles Two 0-0-1 is ushered in with air raid horns and bells. Time to sing time to dance, Living out my second chance. Cobras and sleeping bags are coiled and curled That's the way it happens on the Far Side of the World. Back at home, it's afternoon six thousand miles away. It will still be there when I get through attending this soiree There are jobs and chores and questions and plates I need to twirl, But tonight I'll take my chances on the Far Side of the World. Yes, that's the way it happens on the Far Side of the World.
