Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

 

Bummin' Around 
I got an ol' slouch hat,
got my roll on my shoulder
I'm as free as a breeze 
an' do as I please, 
just a bummin' around . . .
 
Gotta million friends, 
I don't feel any older
I've got nothin' to lose 
not even the blues, 
just a bummin' around . . .
 
Whenever worries start
to botherin' me  ( start botherin' me! )
I grab my coat, my ol' slouch hat, 
hit the trail again, 
you see . . .
 
I ain't got a dime, 
don't care where I'm goin'
I'm as free as a breeze 
an' do as I please, 
just a bummin' around!
 
[ instrumental break ]
 
I hit the trail again, 
you see . . .
 
I ain't got a dime, 
don't care where I'm goin'
I'm as free as a breeze 
an' do as I please, 
just a bummin' around . . .
 
just a bummin' around . . .
just a bummin' around . . .
just a bummin' around . . .
