RANDY NEWMAN lyrics - Wandering Boy

RANDY NEWMAN
"Wandering Boy"

Thank you for the party
We're always glad we came
I'm the only one from the family tonight
But I know they'd say the same

I came here with my father
Then I brought my wife
Three sons, a daughter
Then the last baby boy
The little caboose we called him
The light of her life
And that's who I'm waiting for

Where is my wandering boy tonight?
Where is my wandering boy?
If you see him push him toward the light
Where is my wandering boy?

He went off of that high board there
When he was 5 years old
Laughing like a maniac
Shining in the sun like gold
He was afraid of nothin' then
He was loved by everyone
I see it clear as I see you
That day there in the sun

I hope he's warm and I hope he's dry
And that a stranger's eye is a friendly eye
And I hope he has someone
Close by his side
And I hope that he'll come home

Where is my wandering boy tonight?
Where is my wandering boy?
If you see him tell him everything's alright
Push him toward the light
Where is my wandering boy?
