  Ja ne evrei...

Back in the day, yo, as we learned
A man was not considered to be
Considered to be fully grown
Has he not gone beyond the hills
Has he not crossed the seven seas
(Yeah, seven seas at least!)
Now all them jokers kept around
Just like the scarecrows in hometown
Yeah, scarecrows in hometown
But I'm a wonderlust king

I stay on the run
(The run!)
Let me out
Let me be gone
In the world's beat up road sign
I saw new history of time
New history of time!

Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada oh! Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

Through Siberian woods
Breaking up their neck
(Breaking up their neck!)
Chinese moving in, building discoteques
(Building discoteques!)
Trans-Siberian sex toys and what-not
Yeah, and why not?
Well at least it's something different
Ja ne evrei, no koje-chto pohozge
Sovrat ne dast ni Yura ni Seryozga!
Simple because I'm not a total gadjo
Da ja shut, ja tziratch, nu tak stozge?

I traveled the world
Looking for understanding
Of the times that we live in
Hunting and gathering first-hand information
Challenging definitions of sin
I traveled the world
Looking for lovers
Of the ultimate beauty
But never settled in
Hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya
I am a wonderlust king!

I stay on the run
(The run!)
Let me out
Let me be gone
In the world's beat up road sign
I saw new history of time
New history of time!

Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!
Dadadadada dadadadada dadadadada dadadada oh!

And presidents
And billionaires
And generals
They'll never know
What I have owned
What I have owned
Hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya
Hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya, hay-eh-ya

I am a wonderlust king!
