The Lyrics

Well now he's the kind of guy who just keeps a-roaming 'round
He is all too immature that he just could settle down
He picks up girls and shags them and he wants to have them grand
All he ever cares is just another one-night stand

We call him the wanderer
yeah, the wanderer
he roams around around around around around

He is somewhat narcisstic, and the only one he cares
is just himself, and girls he treats as if they were just mares
He cannot give any love, he knows no comfort too
All he leaves behind are just gigglings and but boo

We call him the wanderer
yeah, the wanderer
he roams around around around around around

Well he is on the spree
With his jalopy to call
His emotional age is three
He knows no responsibility at all -

Well he's the kind of guy that just to likes to think he's tough
But once you've seen just one you've seen them quite enough
If he can get a bimbo but can't keep her, that ain't cool
He even doesn't realize he is dork and kind of fool

We call him the wanderer
yeah, the wanderer
he roams around around around around around

Susanna - I think that was pretty much what the Original song was all about. That was back in the 50's after all...

Uh, Susanna, while this is a good parody, the original was by Dion, in 1961. Not the Beach Boys. Wrong side of the country (The Bronx instead of Orange County, California). Matter of fact, I once saw an interview with him, where he said, "Runaround Sue and the Wanderer married each other. We cancel each other out. Now she runs around to Bloomingdale's, and I wander around on the oldies circuit." I've also heard that "Runaround Sue" was about a neighborhood slut, but they changed the name to the generic, easy-to-rhyme "Sue" because they couldn't find anything to rhyme with "Dolores" -- unless, as "Seinfeld" later proved, they wanted to end up on WhatFreaks; the closest allowable word they could come up with was "Lavoris," a brand of (ironically enough) mouthwash. By the way, tomorrow, July 18, is Dion's birthday. He'll be 67, and is happy and well, living in South Florida with Susan. They had three daughters, all now grown up.

Well - as we say in Finland, it seems the bushel did find its lid :-) I bet Runaround Sue and Wanderer must have had a very colourful marriage :)

I wanted to be the first to spoof this one. I was thinking the same things as you. 5's good insight.
