Lis­ten to the 1st verse and fill in the gaps.
High­light and write down words that are new for you.

I like dig­ging holes and hi­ding things inside them,

When I'll grow old I hope I won't forget to find them.

'Cause I've got memories and tra­vel like gyp­sies in the night.

I built a home and wait for someone to tear it down,

Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running.

'Cause I've got me­mo­ries and tra­vel like gyp­sies in the night.

Pre-​Chorus: And a thousand times I've seen this road, a thousand times!

Cho­rus: I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground. (2x)

I've got no roo-​oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots. (2x)

    Ask me where I come from, I'll say a dif­fe­rent land.

    I like stan­ding still, but that's just a wish­ful plan.

    It's just the place that chan­ges, the rest is still the same.

    I count gates and num­bers, then play the gues­sing game.
