My Mini and Me

I wanna pack it all in –
Pack up and go to sea
Wind down like Huckleberry Finn
Sleep in a poplar tree
Time I gave my mind a rest
Wanna feel some of that weightlessness
Away from the smog and the noise and the mess –
My Mini and me.

I wanna give it all up –
Give in to the need
Hand my soul to Lady Luck
Before it goes to seed
Rattle along in the outside lane
A place where nobody knows my name
Away from the smog and the noise and the shame
My Mini and me.

Take me away
Come on and take me away
Take me away
Come on and take me away

I wanna break it all down –
Break into the deep
Gonna quit this grimy town
Leave the rotten heap
Ain’t got no chauffeur, no saloon
Nor much in the way of elbow room
But away from the smog and the noise and the gloom
My Mini and me.

Take me away
Come on and take me away
Take me away
Come on and take me away

To everyone I’ve ever known: go preach my name in reverent tones
And every passing day
A waterfall of praise
And everyone who was unkind: go scold your cold and callous minds
Each second that I’m gone
Think of how you did me wrong…

Take me away
Come on and take me away
Take me away
Come on and take me away
