We’re Off on the Road to Morocco [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to We’re Off on the Road to Morocco (1942) Written by Jimmy Van Heusen, Lyrics by Johnny Burke, Performed by Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in Road to Morocco

We’re off on the road to Morocco
This taxi is tough on the spine [beats the bu]
Where they’re goin’, why we’re goin’, how can we be sure
I’ll lay you eight to five that we’ll meet Dorothy Lamour [woo hoo!]

Off on the road to Morocco
Hang on till the end of the line
I hear this country’s where they do the dance of the seven veils
We’d tell you more (uh-ah) but we would have the censor on our tails

We certainly do get around
Like Webster’s Dictionary we’re Morocco bound

We’re off on the road to Morocco
Well look out, well clear the way, ’cause here we come
The men eat fire, sleep on nails and saw their wives in half
It seems to me there should be easier ways to get a laugh

We’re off on the road to Morocco
And somewhere I feel kind of numb

For any villains we may meet
We haven’t any fear
Paramount will protect us
‘Cuz we’re signed for five more years!

We certainly do get around
Like a complete set of Shakespeare that you get in the corner drugstore for a dollar ninety-eight
We’re Morocco bound

Or, like a volume of Omar Khayyam that you buy in the department store at Christmas time for your cousin Julia
We’re Morocco bound
