I know, I know but I gotta get outta here
You know, I gotta go pay these bills, I got a show to do
You know, one time for your mind

Let's go to sleep in Paris 
And wake up in Tokyo 
Have a dream in New Orleans 
Fall in love in Chicago, Mayne 

I love her and I hate to leave her lonely 
Ring ring went the Iphone, it was my homie 
He said, ?Let's hit Japan if we can make 'em jam
We can make a hundred grand, spend it in the South of France?

Nothin' further, I jumped, grabbed my Goyard trunk
Got ready to 'Walk it Out' like Unk in my John Lennon chucks
That's when I heard Murder, you're killin' me, you're fillin' me
With sorrow, sunrise, goodbyes and missin' you tomorrow's

I turn to see, my dream love supreme queen
 Meanest thing on the scene, cry
I drop my bags in a flash that's faster one
Than 180 on that dash sir to dry her tears 

And wipe the rain from my dear like Dasher 
You's the dame who's the user name to all my passwords 
The reason I get fly as Ivan Jasper 
I even keep your picture in my passport, love, love

Let's go to sleep in Paris 
And wake up in Tokyo 
Have a dream in New Orleans 
Fall in love in Chicago, Mayne 

Then we can land in the motherland  Camel back across the desert sand
Take a train to Rome or home
Brazil, for real

 Wherever I go she goes
 Wherever I go she goes

So let's keep it real, all in together, free chill 
Tell the stewardess to throw a movie on the reel
Heat up my kosher meal, exchange my dollar bills
Lean back in my first class, seat and sleep 

Don't wake me till I land, when they barely understand
What I speak but they nod to my beats 
I tell my fans who I am and they stand and they clap
They applaud, they love me, my God

O'scadie sama'desta or maybe au revoir 
A spree on Saint Henry, then back to Charles de Gaul
So I can get home and tell her everywhere that I been
And everythin' that I done and tell her that she's the one and um

Let's go to sleep in Paris 
And wake up in Tokyo 
Have a dream in New Orleans 
Fall in love in Chicago, Mayne 

Then we can land in the motherland  Camel back across the desert sand
Take a train to Rome or home
Brazil, for real

 Wherever I go she goes
 Wherever I go she goes

 Guess who's back in the house 
With a bunch of souvenirs and a smile for your mouth?
I really missed you, each and every night I kissed ya
In my dreams fore I went to sleep to Lala land to count them sheep 

I swear you're lookin' prettier than Eva
It's got to be a prophecy for us to stay together ever more
For better or less or poor or worth our weight in buried treasure
X's on the shore 

I know my world tour's like war to ya
But Ian said, ?Aloha? and Harley said, ?Cheers?
 Julian said, ?Bonjour?, Big O was like, ?Yeah?
 Amanda and Lemessie want to know when we goin' there 

 Edison sends his love, so does the rest of the club
Of the international playboys and playgirls 
But I revoke my membership, all for my tenderness 

She said, ?Pursue your interests, 'cause even if I'm ticket less
I'll be there, by your side in your heart on your mind?
So, as I taxi down another runway
I gotcha, who loves you bay now bring it back, now

Let's go to sleep in Paris 
And wake up in Tokyo 
Have a dream in New Orleans 
Fall in love in Chicago, Mayne 

Then we can land in the motherland  Camel back across the desert sand
Take a train to Rome or home
Brazil, for real

 Wherever I go she goes
 Wherever I go she goes
 Wherever I go she goes
 Wherever I go she goes
