Johnny was a simple clerk
Worked for a big company
In a city full of smoke
Where no one cares about each other cares

He was bored, he was stressed
He wanted to fly anywhere
Though he was quite well paid
He was always yearning for a change

But what was he supposed to do
When all his life he's been a fool

Then he realised
What he had to do
Pack his bags and sell it all
Go back to his roots

To the country, there he went
Got a farm, tilled the earth
Cows and sheeps, hens and pigs
Working hard from dawn to dusk each day

There he found real good friends
And he met a lovely girl
And the last time that we met
This is what he got to say

So what are you supposed to do
When all your life you've been a fool

Then I realised
What I had to do
Pack my bags and sell it all
Go back to my roots
