Going Back West (12" Version Full) Lyrics

 

Going Back West (12" Version Full) - Boney M

I was born and raised in the ghetto

 

Talk with me and you'll know

 

I wasn't satisfied with living on the side

 

I started looking around for a possibility

 

Listen to my story of what became of me

 

I met a businessman

 

Who said he had some friends back east

 

So why don't you come along

 

Well we can help you at least

 

We'll make you into a big star

 

By playing your guitar

 

But the joke was on me

 

They left me flat to see

 

Going back west

 

Yes I know I'll make out alright

 

Going back west

 

Where my music's playing all night

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

I think I'll do alright

 

Going back west

 

Yes I know I'll make out alright

 

Going back west

 

Where my music's playing all night

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

I think I'll do alright

 

Struggling for recognition

 

Identity and respect

 

I got a lot of promises

 

They told me not to fret

 

So we will stand by you

 

If the going gets rough

 

But when I started thinking

 

They didn't even bluff

 

Bout a year has come and gone

 

And left me standing here

 

Thinking how it could have been

 

For still I ain't nowhere

 

They surely took me for a ride

 

Trampled on my pride

 

But I hold my head up high

 

Got no more tears to cry

 

Going back west

 

Yes I know I'll make out alright

 

Going back west

 

Where my music's playing all night

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

I think I'll do alright

 

Going back west

 

Yes I know I'll make out alright

 

Going back west

 

Where my music's playing all night

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

I think I'll do alright

 

Going back west (Going back west)

 

Going back west Going back west

(Going back west)( Going back west)

 

Going back west (Going back west)

I think I'll do alright

 

Going back west

 

Yes I know I'll make out alright

 

Going back west

 

Where my music's playing all night

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

I think I'll do alright

 

Going back west (going back west)

 

Going back west (going back west)
