Lyrics:
So you think you're a Romeo
playing a part in a picture-show
   Take the long way home
   Take the long way home
Cos you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
   Take the long way home
   Take the long way home
But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
all the greenery is comin' down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you're part of the
furniture oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice.
When lonely days turn to lonely nights
you take a trip to the city lights
   And take the long way home
   Take the long way home
You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
   You take the long way home
   Take the long way home
And when you're up on the stage, it's so unbelievable,
unforgettable, how they adore you,
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity,
oh, calamity, is there no way out?
Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could
have been oh, what might have been,
if you'd had more time.
So, when the day comes to settle down,
Who's to blame if you're not around?
   You took the long way home
   You took the long way home...........
