Sinner on the mainlandHe's a sinner on the seaHe looks for absolutionNot accountabilityHow many destinationsOh God he's seen them allHe collects his precious pittanceNever a port of callRemittance ManBlack sheep of the family clanBroke too many rules along the wayRemittance ManSo far away from homeNo they'll never understandThe Remittance ManA man of empty pocketsFrom jingling his changeThe idleness and grievingFor all that he retainsBy the harbour lights of SydneyOr the Bora Bora moonHe recites his sad confessionTo the seagulls and the loonsRemittance ManBlack sheep of the family clanBroke too many rules along the wayRemittance ManSo far away from homeNo they'll never understandThe Remittance ManWell you can claim that you were born a princeBut you're the only one you can convinceSurvivor with no livelihoodThat you could ever make it goodBut still you dream of what you can pretendAn unexpected passengerBoarded in MarseillesAn angel full of tendernessShe gave her heart awayShe was but a gypsyHe was just a strayThey almost made a miracle but it slowly slipped awaySo he follows the equatorWith a wish to run agroundIt's a very vicious circleGoin' round and round and roundAnd he watches from the fantailAs the mainland disappearsJust like the Flying DutchmanHe's a prisoner of his fearsRemittance ManBlack sheep of the family clanBroke too many rules along the wayRemittance ManSo far away from homeNo they'll never understandNo they'll never understandNo they'll never understandThe Remittance Man
