The Lyrics

I just wanted to make it home
Then I came upon a detour cone
I took the long way home
I took the long way home

Road construction in the neighborhood
Will they ever have it lookin' good?
I took the long way home
I took the long way home

There are times that you feel they're ruining the scenery
All the greenery is comin' down, boy
When you're tryin' to get somewhere in a hurry
It does no good to worry, you're just two hours late

There were tons of cars ahead of me
We all ended up in Italy
We took the long way home
We took the long way home

I saw things I didn't wanna see--
Pig farms and chicken factories
I took the long way home
I took the long way home

I think I travelled around the world-unbelievable
Unforgettable, how it screwed me up
Then I started to lose my grip on reality
Oh, calamity, is this the Twilight Zone?

So I finally pulled into my drive
Glad that I made it home alive
I took the long way home
I took the long way home
