Wreckless Eric - Whole Wide World album
Album Wreckless Eric. Whole Wide World Lyrics. When I was a young boy My mama said to me There's only one girl in the world for you And 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 Caribbean Sea is blue Weeping in a tropical moonlit night Because nobody's told her 'bout 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.

I went to the university bar because I never went there, had a drink, then I sat on a bench on the Cottingham Road and wrote most of the words to the song on the back of an envelope.
