He's got this dream about buyin' some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
And then he'll settle down there's a quiet little town
And forget about everything

from Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street Lyrics on Rap Genius


The person mentioned plans to settle down his wild lifestyle. He’ll stop “sowing his wild oats,” give up alcohol, and find himself in a serious, stable relationship and start an adult life.
