“(I’d Go The) Whole Wide World” Lyrics

When I was a young boy
Mama, she said to me
“There’s only one girl in the world for you
And she probably lives Tahiti

“Or maybe she’s in the Bahamas
Where the Caribbean Sea is blue
Weeping away in the tropical night
Because nobody’s told her ’bout you”

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world just to find her
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her
Yeah!

Why am I hanging around in the rain out here
Trying to think of a girl?
Why are my eyes filling up with these lonely tears
When there’s girls all over the world?

Or is she lying on a tropical beach somewhere
Underneath the tropical sun?
Hiding away in the heat wave there
Hoping that I won’t be long

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world just to find her
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world just to find her
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her
Yeah!

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world
I’d go the whole wide world
