My Place Called Home


n a cul-de-sac in Kensington
That’s where I found my home
Not much to look at but it’s got walls
That’s where I found my home

It may not have the perfect view
But it’s got all I need it to
Needs some work but I don’t care
I got time to spare

And you can call in anytime
For a chat and some wine
You can call in anytime
Anytime is fine

He went looking but he never found
The perfect place to settle down
Never quite right or asking to much
Lacking something of a personal touch
Weekend newspapers and on the web
But they weren’t what they said

In a cul-de-sac in Kensington
That’s where I found my home
Not much to look at but it’s got walls
That’s where I found my home

It may not have the perfect view
But it’s got all I need it to
Needs some work but I don’t care
I got time to spare

And you can call in anytime
For a chat and some wine
You can call in anytime
Anytime is fine

And I went looking but I never found
That special place to settle down
But I think I’m lucky, I got what I need
My place that I call home

And you can call in anytime
For a chat and some wine
You can call in anytime
Anytime is fine
