Lyrics

Oh, give me a home where the bighorners roam
Where the mole rat and the fire gecko play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And my skin is not glowing all day

Home, home on the wastes,
Where the mole rat and the fire gecko play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And my skin is not glowing all day

Where the rads ain't too high, the water's not bad,
The radscorps are playful and mild
Oh, I would not exchange this home on the wastes,
For all the big cities so wild

Home, home on the wastes
Where the Master's great armies once played
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And my rads are not rising all day

Home, home on the wastes,
Where the mole rat and the fire gecko play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And my skin is not glowing all day
