Travelin Man Lyrics

I'm a travelin' man - made a lot of stops - all over the world
And in every port I own the heart of at least one lovely girl
I've a pretty Seniorita - waiting for me - down in old Mexico
If you're ever in Alaska stop and see my cute little Eskimo

Oh, my sweet Fraulien - down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll - down in old Hong Kong - Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby - over the sea - I remember the night
When we walked in the sand of Waikiki and I held you oh so tight

Oh, my sweet Fraulien - down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn
And my China doll - down in old Hong Kong - Waits for my return

Pretty Polynesian baby - over the sea - I remember the night
When we walked in the sand of Waikiki and I held you oh so tight
Oh, I'm a travelin' man - Yes, I'm a travelin' man
Whoa, I'm a travelin' man - Do do do do do
