​Please Don't Put Me On A Slowboat To Trowbridge

This song is by Hugh Cornwell and appears on the album Hooverdam (2008).

Don't mind if you send me to Coventry
Spain's not against my will
Hong Kong China possibility
Sweden didn't get my fill
Been down south of the border
I love Durham in the dales
I've Singaporean law and order
And New York City never fails

Please don't put me on a slow boat to Trowbridge
I promise I'll mend my ways
Please don't put me on a slow boat to Trowbrisdge
Not ready for salad days

Sydney and me go together
I've worn a Panamanian hat
I've had some fun down in Dubai
And Tokyo is where it's at
Spent two weeks in Malindi
There's a black hole in Calcutta
Met Italian prima-donnas
And in the Philippines I got a hut

Please don't put me on a slow boat to Trowbridge
I promise I'll mend my ways
Please don't put me on a slow boat to Trowbridge
Not ready for salad days
