Down Under Lyrics

Down Under - 80s Chartstarz/80s Greatest Hits/The 80's Band

Written by:Ron Strykert/Colin James Hay

Traveling in a fried out Kombi

 

On a hippie trail head full of zombie

 

I met a strange lady

 

She made me nervous

 

She took me in and gave me breakfast

 

And she said

Do you come from a land down under

 

Where women glow and men plunder

 

Can't you hear

Can't you hear the thunder

 

You better run you better take cover

 

Buying bread from a man in Brussels

 

He was six foot four and full of muscles

 

I said

Do you speak a my language

 

He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich

 

And he said

I come from a land down under

 

Where beer does flow and men chunder

 

Can't you hear can't you hear the thunder

 

You better run you better take cover

Yeah

 

Lying in a den in Bombay

 

With a slack jaw and not much to say

 

I said to the man

Are you trying to tempt me

 

Because I come from the land of plenty

 

And he said

Do you come from a land down under

 

Oh yeah yeah

 

Where women glow and men plunder

 

Can't you hear can't you hear the thunder

 

You better run you better take cover

 

Living in a land down under

 

Where women glow and men plunder

 

Can't you hear can't you hear the thunder

 

You better run you better take cover

 

Living in a land down under

 

Where women glow and men plunder

 

Can't you hear can't you hear the thunder

 

You better run you better take cover

 

Living in a land down under

 

Where women glow and men plunder

 

Can't you hear can't you hear the thunder

 

 

You better run you better take cover
