I do' wanna wander, I do' wanna go;
I like things as they are—just so.
I gotta job I kin hold for life.
I gotta home and a darned good wife;
Maybe I'm rusty, maybe I'm slow
But I do' wanna wander, I do' wanna go.

Gotta bit of money, just a small amount
Tucked away in a bank account;
Rollin' stones don't get no moss,
Not, at least, that I've run across;
Guys that's restless, let 'em pack an' blow,
I do' wanna wander, I do' wanna go.

I like things just the way they are;
I got two babies an' a flivver car,
That'll take us any place we please
But I don't hanker for no seven seas.
I wanna watch my youngsters grow,
I do' wanna wander, I do' wanna go.

I'll get stuffy, and I'll get fat?
That's my worry, lemme tell you that.
You like travel, go ahead and hike,
Staying home is the thing I like.
Them's my feelings, do you get me, bo?
I do' wanna wander, I do' wanna go.
