Visa The Carpool to Rio
Come on feet, start moving, got to get me there
Hey, hey, ha ha ha ha
Twenty-five miles from home, girl
My feet are hurtin’ mighty bad
Now I’ve been walkin’ for three days
And two lonely nights
So I got to keep on walkin’
Oh I got to walk on
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride
I got fifteen miles to go now
And I can hear my baby callin’ my name
It’s as if, as though
I’m standin’ at her front door
I got to keep on walkin’
Come on, feet, don’t fail me now
I got ten more miles to go
I got nine, eight, seven
