I'm A Stranger Here

Version originale (4:38)

Excuse me madam, would you mind
Sparing a moment of your time?
I wandered off the beaten track
And now I can't find my way back
Excuse me sir, may I intrude?
I hope you do not think me rude
I went out for a loaf of bread
Now everything I love is dead

I'm a stranger here, I'm a stranger here
You can tell from my voice and my clothing of choice
I'm a stranger here
I'm a stowaway from the olden days
And I'll play you a song from the place I come from
If you like

When I was young they said to me
This way towards modernity
So if you ask where I come from
I'll say, "The past"
And wander on

I'm a stranger here, I'm a stranger hereI'm a stranger here, I'm a stranger here
You can tell from my tie and the fear in my eyeYou can tell from my tie and the fear in my eye
I'm a stranger here
I'm a stowaway from the olden daysI'm a stowaway from the olden days
And I'll play you a song from the place I come from
If you like, if you like
