Don't want to be on no rooftop
Frying in the afternoon sun
Don't want to sit by no fountain
Listening to the man-made stream run
Just want to stand where the sea-spray
Gleams like fire with you
And I don't have to tell you why

Don't want to go to no parties
Full of fair-weather friends
Don't want to be in no "in" crowd
Chasing after every trend
Just want to stand on some hillside
In Wales with you
And fly, don't have to tell you why

Don't want to live in no mansion
Ornate as a crown prince's church
Don't want to live on no sidewalk
Underneath no pigeon's perch
Just want to stand at the rainbow's
Real end with you
And I don't have to tell you why
