Doctor Livingston, I presume
Stepping out of the jungle gloom
Into the midday sun
What did you find there?
Did you stand awhile and stare?
Did you meet anyone?

"I've seen butterflies galore
I've seen people big and small
I've still not found what I'm looking for."

We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone

Captain Scott, you were so bold
Now you're looking rather cold
Out there in the snow
What did you find there?
Did you stand awhile and stare?
Did you meet anyone?

"I've seen polar bears and seals
I've seen giant Antarctic eels
I've still not found what I'm looking for."

We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone

Columbus, where are you bound?
So you think the world is round
Sailed off in the blue
What did you find there?
Did you stand awhile and stare?
Did you meet anyone?

"There are Indians by the score
In many places that I saw
I've still not found what I'm looking for."

We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone
We're all looking for someone
