For those who can't accesss the video, here are the lyrics:



When I'm feeling weary and blue, I'm only too
Glad to be left alone
Dreaming of a place in the sun when day is done
far from a telephone

Hardly ever see the sky
Buildings seem to grow so high

give me somewhere peaceful and grand where all the land
slumbers in monotone

I'm world weary living in a great big town
I find it so dreary so dreary
everything looks grey or brown
I want an ocean blue
great big trees
bird's eye view of the Pyrenees
I wanna watch the moon rise up
see the great red sun go down
watching clouds go by through a windy sky fascinates me
but if i do it in the street every cop I meet simply hates me
B/c I'm World Weary World Weary
tired of all these jumping jacks
I wanna get right back to nature and relax

I'm world weary living in a great big town
I find it so dreary, so dreary
I want a horse and plow, chickens too
just one cow with a wistful moo
A country where the verb "to work"
becomes a most improper noun
I can hardly wait till i see the great open spaces
my loving friends will not be there I'm so sick of their darn fool faces
because I'm world weary
I could kiss the railroad tracks
I wanna get right back to nature
assume a horizontal stature
I wanna get right back to nature and relax
