Big white mansion, top of the road
Latest fashion, happy, don't you know?
Here I am in New York, yeah
See the girl bold and fair
(Yo, Anita)

What's in your backpack today?
Will it take my blues away?
That's okay, You gotta run

Huh, check it, I don't need you to have some fun
Comin' from the land of snow
I guess I'm kinda used to cold

But one day I'll have a big white mansion
At the top of the road
I'm gonna wear the latest fashion
I'm gonna be happy, don't you know?

I could use a new guitar, sing a tune at Chazz bar
Maybe meet a debutante
Be a toy, do what she want
(Tell me, what you wanna do?)

Nine 'o' clock, see John K
But you don't rock, come another day
(When?)
Come another day

Spirit so low reachin' up for ground
(Reachin' up for ground)
One day I'm gonna make it in this lonely town

Then I'll live in a big white mansion
At the top of the road
I'm gonna wear the latest fashion
Then I'll be happy, don't you know?

Hey, there, what's your name?
(What's your name, cutie?)
And can you tell me how to play the game?
(I am a winner, listen to this)

Do I really have to cut my hair?
(No)
Now, that's a cross I could never bear
(How 'bout them publishing rights?)

Sell my publishing? What a laugh
(Ha, ha)
I don't know Bo, but I do know math
(I do know math)

Back to Minneapolis, there you go
You can't find your house underneath the snow

'Cuz you're livin' in a big white mansion
(Oh, yes)
At the top of the road
You're wearin' the latest fashion
Tryin' to be happy, don't you know?
(Tryin' to be happy, happy)

Big white, big white mansion
(Big white mansion)
At the top of the road
You and me wearin' Versace, Gucci
(Latest fashion)

Hoochies, they all wanna do me
(Happy, don't you know?)
But am I really happy?
Big white mansion
Yeah, maybe one day
(Yo, Anita)
