I think I'll go on a walkabout 
And find out what it's all about 
And that ain't hard
Just me and my own two feet
In the heat I've got myself to meet

A detective of perspective 
I need to try and get a bigger eye, open wide
 Blood wood flowers in my gaze
 Walkabout in a sunny daze
To me now
On a walkabout 

You could do it in the city
You could do it in a zone
You could do it in the desert 
You could do the unknown 
On a walkabout 

High desert skies, are what I spy
So fly, you've got to wonder why
The stingrays must be fat this year
 Moving slow in my lowest gear

The digeridoo original, man with a dream 
I believe the Aborigine 
On a walkabout 

You could do it with a shuffle 
You could do it with a stroll 
You could do it with a stride 
You could do the unknown 
On a walkabout 

A walk could cure almost all my blues 
Bare feet or in my two shoes 
One, two

I think I'll go on a walkabout 
Find out what it's all about, can't hurt to try
Use your legs to rock it wide
Take a ride to the other side
