Australia

Ray Davies, released on Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), © Hill & Range Songs BMI 1969

.

Opportunities are available in all walks of life in Australia

So if you're young and if you're healthy

Why not get a boat and come to Australia

.

Australia, the chance of a lifetime

Australia, you get what you work for

Nobody has to be any better than what they want to be

Australia, no class distinction

Australia, no drug addiction

Nobody's got a chip on their shoulder

We'll surf like they do in the U.S.A.

We'll fly down to Sydney for our holiday

On sunny Christmas Day

Australia, Australia

No one hesitates at life or beats around the bush in Australia

So if you're young and if you're healthy

Why not get a boat and come to Australia

Australia sha-la-la-la sha-la-la-la

Australia sha-la-la-la sha-la-la-la

Everyone walks around with a perpetual smile across their face

Australia sha-la-la-la sha-la-la-la

Australia sha-la-la-la sha-la-la-la

Everyone gets around and nobody can ever get you down

We'll surf like they do in the U.S.A.

We'll fly down to Sydney for our holiday

On sunny Christmas Day

Australia, Australia
