The Day I Get Home  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
      When this young man comes rolling home  
      The lamp posts move and in the road 
      I sing and dance in falling rain  
      It's good to be back home again 
      The roads of air that map the globe  
      Take me away to places new 
      I'm lucky I can get around  
      I'm taking off and touching down 

      When I get home itís much the same 
      The tax returns return again 
      The news is on it isn't good  
      I see the trees but not the wood 

      The road stretches out as far as I can see 
      And I eat the lines ahead of me 
      It's experience  
      As the days unfold 
      But there's nothing quite like  
      The day I get home  

      When this young man comes rolling home  
      The cheese on toast is in the grill 
      Memories are filed away  
      I come and go, it's fun that way 
      The roads of air that map the globe  
      Go East and West and North and South 
      I like to look and see the sights  
      I stay up late and hit the heights 

      When I return things haven't changed  
      Neither have I, I like to think 
      The world's an oyster on a plate  
      I get around and get up late
