Why Do The Wrong People Travel
Noël Coward
This is fun musical complaint about travel. 

The original tuning of this is in B-major, which is very hard to play. I have transposed it to Cmajor, 
I think this is easier -- but there may be hiccups somewhere, still testing it. 

Help appreciated!




C                   C6
Travel they say improves the mind,
    Dm7  G7     C   
an irritating platitude, 
       Cm       G7    C
which frankly, entre nous, 
   Dm7    G7       C   
is very far from true.

C                C6
Personally I've yet to find 
    Dm7  G7         C   
that longitude and latitude 
Am7     C7         F
can educate those scores
   Am7 C7        F
of monumental bores
     B7
who travel in groups 
    G7
and herds and troupes 
    C                G7 
of various breeds and sexes
          D
Till the whole world reels 
    G7
to shouts and squeals
        C7
and the clicking of Roliflexes

C   C7M    Dm7    C7M    C     G7      C  
Why do the wrong people travel, travel, travel
                            C7M    Cm Fm
When the right people stay back home?

         C     Cdim G7 
What compulsion compels them
     G7     G7-9     
and who the hell tells them
   C7                   Am7 C7    
To drag their bags to Zanzibar
     Am7            C7        Dm7 Fm6  G7 
instead of staying quietly in O - ma     ha?

    C9
The Taj Mahal 
         Fsus
and the Grand Canal
        C9             F
and the sunny French Riviera
      C9 
would be less oppressed 
       Am7 
If the Middle West 
C7
would settle for somewhere 
G7
rather nearer

C     C7M     Cm    Cdim
Please do not think that 
    C  G7      C
I criticize or cavil 
                 C7+ F
at a genuine urge to roam

     Dm7   Fm           C         G7
but why oh why do the wrong people travel
           C7           Dm7  G7  C
when the right people stay back home 
     C7        G7   
and mind their bus'ness
           C7          Dm7  G7   C
when the right people stay back home 
      C7   G7 
with television
          C7           Dm7   G7  C
when the right people stay back home
      C7    G7           C7    
I'm merely asking why the right people stay back home?



C                    C6
Just when you think romance is ripe 
    Dm7    G7     C   
it rather sharply dawns on you 
       Cm       G7   C
that each sweet serenade
   Dm7    G7       C   
is for the tourist trade


C              C6
Any attractive native type 
    Dm7  G7    C   
who resolutely fawns on you 
Am7          C7     F
will give as his address
  Am7 C7   F
American Express


     B7
There isn't a rock 
        G7
between Bangkok 
        C               G7
and the beaches of Hispianola
          D
That does not recoil from 
G7                 C7(6)      G7
suntan oil and the gurgle of Coca-Cola

---Refrain---
C   C7M    Dm7    Cdim  C     G7      C  
Why do the wrong people travel, travel, travel
                            C7M    Cm Fm
When the right people stay back home?
         C       Cdim G7 
What explains this mass mania
     G7     G7-9     
to leave Pennsylvania
     C7                Am7       C7  
and clack around like flocks of geese 
   Am7         C7
demanding dry martinis?
       Dm7   Fm6  G7
On the isles of   Greece?


        C9
In the smallest street
          Fsus  
where the gourmets meet,
       C9      F    
they invariably fetch up
         C9                  Am7 
and it's hard to make them accept a steak 
      C7 
that isn't served rare 
    G7 
and smeared with ketchup


C C7M          Cm   Cdim C    G7    C 
It would take years to unravel, ravel ravel

every impulse that makes them roam

     Dm7   Fm           C         G7
but why oh why do the wrong people travel
           C7           Dm7  G7  C
when the right people stay back home 
     C7        G7   
and eat hot doughnuts,
         C7            Dm7  G7   C
when the right people stay back home 
      C7     G7 
with all that lettuce
          C7          Dm7  G7   C 
when the right people stay back home 
      C7    G7           C7    
I sometimes wonder why the right people stay back home


---Refrain---
C   C7M    Dm7    Cdim  C     G7      C  
Why do the wrong people travel, travel, travel
                            C7M    Cm Fm
When the right people stay back home?
         C    Cdim G7 
What peculiar obsessions 
     G7     G7-9     
inspire those processions
   C7            Am7       C7  
of families from Houston, Tex.,
   Am7         C7
with all those cameras 
Dm7   Fm6  G7
around their necks?
