lyrics

Heading off to New Zealand, I hope one day you'll understand
I was left with nothing so I had to get away
I'm writing to say farewell
And although I love ya still
I never made you happy so I'm heading for Hawkes Bay

Jetting off first thing the morn
From Embra down to London
Stopping off in Vegas cos we go via LA
Where I'm gonna rule the tables
They'll remember me forever
Sorry you're not with me but you wanted it this way

And I don't know how to tell ya
I'm not coming back for ya
And I don't know how to break it
I don't know how you'll take it
This is the end for both of us
So Viva Las Vegas
Sleep tight, tomorrow it's au revoir

Heading off for the New World
I've heard the streets are paved with gold
And fortunes are awaiting for a jakebaw like me
And I don't know if you'll miss me
You made your bed but more's the pity
I'm gonna make the most out of this opportunity

Jetting off in the morn
Gonna get outta this dismal town
Stopping off at JFK for New York City
I'm sorry you're not by my side
But you chose a different life
I'm gonna have some fun now that I'm young and free

And I don't know how to tell ya
I'm not coming back for ya
And I don't know how to break it
I don't know how you'll take it
This is the end for both of us
So Viva Las Vegas
Sleep tight, tomorrow it's au revoir

Heading off for El Dorado
Bags are packed I'll leave tomorrow
Though my heart is heavy and this life can be mean
But I'm master of my destiny
I'll be alright, just you watch me
Just as well I never gave up on my dreams
Heading off to the sun
Stopping off in Amsterdam
Gonna get some culture and a spliff and coffee
Flying off in the morn
Gonna stop in London Town
Gotta stick two fingers up to her majesty

And I don't know how to tell ya
I'm not coming back for ya
And I don't know how to break it
I don't know how you'll take it
Sleep tight, tomorrow it's au revoir
