Ever since I was a child
I loved to wander wild
Through the bright city lights
And find myself a life I could call my own

It was always my ambition
To see Piccadilly
Ramble and roam around Soho
Pimlico and Savile Row

And walk down the Abbey Road
So I saved all my money
And packed up my clothes
And I said good-bye to my friends and my folks back home

And I left for a life of my own
I left for a life on the road

I'm a real hungry tyke
And I know what I like
And I know where I'm goin'
To those bright city lights

Oh yeah, oh yeah
This time I'm gonna get there

I'm bound for a life on the road
Give me life on the road
I said life on the road

When I arrived in Euston
I was little more than a child
And I didn't know then that the dives and the dens
Would be so vulgar and wicked and wild

Mama always told me
The city ladies were bawdy and bold
And so I searched night and day to catch a kissable lady
But all that I caught was a cold

'Cause those stuck-up city ladies
Didn't notice me walk by
Now I've got holes in my shoes
'Cause I've been walkin' the streets all night

And I'm livin' the life that I chose
Livin' my life on the road
I said life on the road
I want life on the road
Life on the road

I was standing with the punks in Praed Street
When a muscle man came my way
He said, "Hey, are you gay? Can you come out and play?"
And like a fool, I went and said, "Okay"

Ever since I was knee high
I thought the city was paved with gold
But I've seen so many losers and down and out boozers
Who were tired of bein' bought and sold

City women are a tease
But I'd really love to please
Now I've got blood shot eyes
'Cause I've been walkin' the streets all night

And it sure knocks you out on the road
And I'm livin' my life on the road
I said life on the road
Life on the road
I want life on the road

One of these days
I wanna go home
Visit my friends
And see all the places that I used to know

And say good-bye
To a world that's too real
Good-bye to a world
That's forgotten how to feel

And it's slowly usin' me
And there's no security
Sometimes I hate the road
But it's the only life I know

But I'm livin' the life that I chose
So I'll live out my life on the road

Give me life on the road
I said life on the road
I said life on the road
Give me life on the road
