The Countries Song (lyrics)

I went to China on an ocean liner
Went to Iran in the back of a van
I went to Spain all the way by train
Just to play in a rock 'n roll band

I went to France just by chance
The USA just for the day
I went to Brazil just to pay my bill
And to play in a rock 'n roll band

I went to Russia  - worked as an usher
Went to Japan - jammed with a man
Rode a bike to Korea ’cause I though it was near
To play in a rock 'n roll band

I went to Congo - along with my bongo
Took a boat-ride to Cuba - along with my tuba
Ireland, ’n Iceland, the Virgin Islands
To play in a rock 'n roll band

I went to China on an ocean liner
Went to Iran in the back of a van
I went to Spain all the way by train
To play in a rock 'n roll band
To play in a rock 'n roll band
To play in a rock 'n roll band
