Sunday morning

has come around

packing my bags

I’m onward bound.

I’ve done my time

and now I’m free

it won’t be long before

I’m by the sea.

Finished with this city

and its institutions

that filled my lungs

with their pollution.

My mind was made up

a long time ago

and now’s the time

to chase my rainbow.

A new life now

is waiting for me

where paradise

stretches as far

as the eye can see.
