When I was a young boy my mama said to me,
"There's only one girl in the world for you,
She probably lives in Tahiti."
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world just to find her.

Or maybe she's in the Bahamas where the Caribean Sea is blue,
Weeping in the tropical moonlit night 'cause nobody's talking about you.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world just to find her.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world just to find her.

I've been hanging around in the rain right here,
Trying to pick up a girl,
My eyes filling up with these lonely tears
When there's girls all over the world.

Is she lying on a tropical beach somewhere
Underneath a tropical sun?
Pining a way in a heat wave there,
hoping that I won't be long.

I should be lying on that sun swept beach with her
Caressing her warm, brown skin.
And then in a year or maybe not quite
We'll be sharing the same next of kin.

I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world just to find her.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world just to find her.
I'd go the whole wide world, 
I'd go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her.
Yeah!
