QuotesEdit

Andy: “Them EMI rung me up and asks, ‘Would you write a song for Jane Birkin?’. You know, ‘Je t'aime, no Max, no. Not in me hairdo’. . . her. She wants it on the theme of returning to England for good (from her long sojourn in France). I facetiously knocked this up, posted it off without a second thought, then days later. . . BANG!. . . it hits me. I've inadvertently written a deeply personal thing about my current attitude to travel. This is so about me, I had no idea. Her lackeys got back to me to say that she thought it was too jolly. Oh well, c'est la vie. That's French for ‘in the lavvy’.”

LyricsEdit

That vase could do with flowers

That fireplace needs wood

I'm going to be around

so I'll fix this house up good


Well me, I'm sick of travelling,

but now I'm home to stay

So I won't be heading nowhere,

I gave my suitcase away


I gave it to a beggar,

a saint too poor to sin

He said that he could use it,

to keep his troubles in


Well me, I'm sick of travelling,

it's been all work no play

So I won't be heading nowhere,

I gave my suitcase away


I know it was expensive

and a birthday gift from you

I hope you're not offended,

that's the last thing I intended to do


Well me, I'm sick of travelling

so here is where I'll lay

and I won't be heading nowhere,

I gave my suitcase away

Well me, I'm tired of roaming around

Home is where the heart is so the smartest people say

So I won't be heading nowhere,

I gave my suitcase away

I gave my suitcase away
