The Traveling Lovers: A Musical Poem and Song Lyric Mash Up!

looking on

I went from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Tacoma, Philadephia. Atlanta. LA.

Northern California where the girls are warm, so I could hear my sweet baby say.

“Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me. Town to get me movin’, keep me grovin’ with some energy. Won’t you take me to Funky Town?”

So we hit the road Jack and we’re not coming back, no more no more no more.

And all the roads that lead us there are winding. And all the lights that light our way are blinding.

Moats and boats and waterfalls, alleyways and payphone calls. I’ve been everywhere with you.

I can remember the fourth of July runnin’ through the backwood bare.

And your smile so warm, and your cheeks so soft. There was nothing for me but to love you, and the way you looked that night.

So how far down do you want to go? We could talk it out over a cup of joe, and you can look deep in my eyes like I was a supermodel.

Baby you’re a song, you make me want to roll my windows down and cruise.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white. And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

We’ll all float on okay. Just fly me to the moon.
