Just say I packed my plastic bag And went away

Well if I have a whim
I either sink or swim
It never really seems to matter either way
And if a bill comes in
Just throw it in the bin
Because I’m sure to get some more another day

Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam I’m on me way
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam

I ought to face life’s complications
But I haven’t got the inclination
And I never learned the hang of facing my responsibilities
So when the bailiff comes
Explain to him
I haven’t got a thing to give to him
But if he wants to come and visit me
This is where I’ll be

Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam I’m on me way
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam

Well if my bank should phone
Tell them I ain’t at home
Just say I packed my plastic bag
And went away
As for the landlord’s rent
I spent it on a tent
So if he’s asking questions
You’ll know what to say

Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam I’m on me way
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam he’s on his way
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam I’m on me way
Zambesi Zambesi Zambesi Zam
(etc)
