Big World (pui version)


Way down in the Vieux Carre
Where all the deer and the antelope play
I was about to give up one day
That gypsy lady came to me to say

What’s with you Glenn, you’ve got to shake it up
Come alive - you can make it up
Eternity is a winding road
Now I don’t want to hear you cry no more

     It’s a big world
     A bad world
     So get up, and move your big bad world

I’m more alive than I could ever have known
My heart’s beating like it’s got up and flown
Now all that stuff about the weather reports
Well tell that weatherman to kiss my shorts

     It’s a big world
     A bad world
     So get up, and move your big bad world

          Throw me down my walking cane, it’s a long way to Tokyo
          I promise you a wild ride, so get your big world ready to go

Out beyond the waves hemming you in
Find the strength, brother, get up and swim
From Coney Island to the beach of Azores*
This world’s an oyster, and the pearl is yours

         Throw me down my walking cane, it’s a long way to Tokyo
          I promise you a wild ride, so get your big world ready to go

     It’s a Big World
     A bad world
     So get up, move your big bad world

Big World

Way down in the Vieux Carre
Where all the deer and all those antelope play
I was about to hang it up one day
Gypsy Lady came to me to say

What’s with you man, you’ve got to shake it up
I swear to Goddess I ain’t makin this up
The way of magic is a winding road
Now I don’t want to hear you cry no more

     It’s a Big World
     A bad world
     So get up, move your big bad world

Well hell, I could never have known
My heart’s beating like it’s got up and flown
Now all that stuff about the weather reports
Well tell that weatherman to kiss my shorts

     It’s a Big World
     A bad world
     So get up, move your big bad world

          Throw me down my walking cane, it’s a long way to Tokyo
          And I can promise you a wild ride so get your big world ready to go

Out beyond the breakers hemming you in
That’s where you’ll find the strength to get up and swim
From Kalahari to Estonian shores*
This world’s an oyster and the pearl is yours

     It’s a Big World
     A bad world
     So get up, move your big bad world

*alternative: from Maui Island to the Jersey Shore
