Information

This is a cover of a Herman's Hermits song (1966).

A reply to a member's email from Peter Noone was shared here in 2000

"Hello Shawn,

Thanks for the email. I heard Morisey was a big HH fan, so I was happy he did one of our songs. I think he just missed.I think my version captured the sadness of life on the road better than he was able to do, although I will admit he has cornered the sadness market much better than me. See you in the whirled.

Lyrics

East west, over the ocean
Perpetual motion, traveling around
No rest singing and playing
Night out and day in doing the rounds

What a great life this must seem

Swelled joints, every thing classy
Nothing is tacky, only the best
Lush girls, older and dying
Sighing and crying, 'This is success'

What a great life this must seem

But when I hear your voice singing out
The bells of home are ringing out
And I feel all alone
(And I think of my home)

Cold times a wind through the houses
The bleakness arouses a longing to leave
Time flew, I wanted to see you
Somehow I could not do because of success

What a strange life this can be

But when I hear your voice singing out
The bells of home are ringing out
And I feel all alone
(And I think of my home)
