Little Geo is a friend of mine
We get some money and we buy a cheap wine
Sit on the corner and have a holiday

Hide the bottle when the cop goes by
Talk about women and lie, lie, lie
Oh, my other world is just a half a mile away

Wait for mama to turn out the light
Crawl on the roof and then I hit the night
I should be sleeping but tonight I just can't stay

I've given everybody so much time
Now I need a moment that's mine
Oh my other world is just a half a mile away

It's just a half a mile away
It's just a half a mile away
It's just a half a mile away

Angelina, save a place for me
I've been livin' someone else's life and now I've got to be free
Turn your transistor on and let the music play

I try to keep the family satisfied
But there's gotta be more to life than just try, try, try
Oh my other world is only half a mile away

It's just a half a mile away
It's just a half a mile away
It's just a half a mile away

I've given everybody so much time
Now I need a moment that's mine
Oh my other world is just a half a mile away

Don't you know it's just a half a mile away
Just, just, just, just, just half a mile away
Don't you understand it's just half a mile away

Just, just, just, just, just, just, just, just
Just, just a half a mile away
Everyone got to know it's just a half a mile away
Yeah, just half a mile away
