Lyrics

Two couch potatoes
Sitting at home
Turn that crap off
And let's go outside
Just like a pair of dandelions
Taking to the winds
Don't care where we go
Any place is much better than this

So don't you worry that you're going too fast
'Cause I'll be meeting you there
And you'll be glad that you asked, yeah yeah
When it seemed like we would misunderstand
We're gonna make it all up
'Cause we're a traveling band, yeah yeah

Minnesota, Istanbul, or Pakistan
We can do it like no one else on earth can
Rolling wheels, hopping trains on a dare
North Dakota, you could take me anywhere

Highway robbers
They tried to loot us
But screw them
We will send them packing
You and me we make quite the couple
On this dusty road
As long as we're together
It feels like every place is home

So don't you worry that you're going too fast
'Cause I'll be meeting you there
And you'll be glad that you asked, yeah yeah
When it seemed like we would misunderstand
We're gonna make it all up
'Cause we're a traveling band, yeah yeah

Minnesota, Istanbul, or Pakistan
We can do it like no one else on earth can
Rolling wheels, hopping trains on a dare
North Dakota, you could take me anywhere

You could take me anywhere

We're a traveling band, yeah yeah

Minnesota, Istanbul, or Pakistan
We can do it like no one else on earth can
Rolling wheels, hopping trains on a dare
North Dakota, you could take me anywhere
You could take me anywhere
