The Wanderer
Donna Summer Lyrics


Woke up this morning
Dragged myself across the bed
Alice went to wonderland
But I stayed home instead
I started feeling bad
'Cause I was left behind
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Oh yes, I'm a wanderer

She climbed right through the mirror
Oh that really blew my mind
I think I'll follow through her rhythm
And her rhyme
I know I'm ready now
It's just a little time
'Cause I'm a wanderer
I'm a wanderer

'Cause I'm a wanderer
I travel every place
'Cause I'm a wanderer
From here to outer space
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Got no time
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Just a wanderer

Slipped down the back stair
On my toes
Then out the door
They didn't hear
Now they won't
See me anymore
'Cause I can't take
That nine to five life
It's a bore
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Just a wanderer

And so it's up and out
And on and off the road
Won't have no troubles
'Cause the whole world
Is my home
No need to worry
'Cause I seldom am alone
'Cause I'm wanderer
I'm a wanderer

'Cause I'm a wanderer
I travel every place
'Cause I'm a wanderer
From here to outer space
'Cause I'm wanderer
Got no time
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Just a wanderer

'Cause I'm a wanderer
Just a wanderer

Now you may see me
Any time and any place
And you may know me
From the same look
On your face
And I don't know if I could
Change your frame of mind
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Just a wanderer

'Cause I'm a wanderer
I travel every place
'Cause I'm a wanderer
From here to outer space
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Got no time
'Cause I'm a wanderer
'Cause I'm a wanderer
'Cause I'm a wanderer
'Cause I'm a wanderer
I travel every place
'Cause I'm a wanderer
From here to outer space
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Got no time
'Cause I'm a wanderer
I travel every place
'Cause I'm a wanderer
From here to outer space
'Cause I'm a wanderer
Got no time

I was in 6th / 7th grade when this was released. What a memory flashback! 😀

Guillermo Pérez

Es de la mejor musica de los 70 y principios 80 the wanderer deberia ser un clasico pero no sele considera asi sin embargo tiene un sonidofuturista y fuerte es maravilloso la mas grande cantante en los 70S

Daniel Cronan

A #3 smash for her in 1980, but pretty much forgotten now.

Tuck Porter

Agreed. I think it's because Donna Summer returned back to her Famed Disco Roots that we Love her for. In L.A. around mid 1979 , I feel Disco had come to an immediate "halt" due to a lot of things including bad press about "hearing the same beat" over & over again. Looks like Donna Summer "temporarily" stepped outside her Disco comfort zone and did an entire "Rock n Roll" stint for awhile which included this cool hit "The Wanderer".

🤔 This song went to #3 in the Billboard pop charts. Wonder why they never play it on the radio. 📻
