SPIRIT OF AUSTRALIA

She took a long vacation from her motherland

And came with her friend to check out all her favourite bands

All the guys like to fun around, she likes to keep them on a hook

Next day when the come around, she wouldn’t give them a second look

 

She was the Spirit of Australia,…..Spirit of Australia

Oh she was blonde, she was tanned,

Like a bombshell hit the sand

She was the Spirit of Australia

 

Things really hotted up since she came round here

Looks like a beauty queen, Miss Southern Hemisphere

She wore a blue swimsuit with her country’s flag upon it

And when she’d shoot the curl, they call her the Bondi Comet

 

She was the Spirit of Australia,…..Spirit of Australia

Oh she was blonde, she was tanned,

Like a bombshell hit the sand

She was the Spirit of Australia

And when she’d shoot the curl, they call her the Bondi Comet

 

She was the Spirit of Australia,…..Spirit of Australia

Oh she was blonde, she was tanned,

She was the Spirit of Australia

THE BEACH WILL NEVER DIE

Hey you remember when Joey’s place was the coolest place to go?

Whatever happened to that DJ, man , now does anybody know?

When I hear that it’s a car park now it makes me wanna cry

But through all these years, we still come here

The Beach Will Never Die

 

Do you remember those Friday nights kids would come from miles around,

To that little cellar down the alleyway where they’d rock the ceiling down?

Well nothing lasts forever they say, but I say that’s a lie

‘Cos through all these years, we still come here,

The Beach Will Never Die

 

Hey you remember those groovy times at The Whisky sure were fun,

Drivin’ home with the top pulled down and the late night radio on,

If you’re feeling like the summer’s gone, don’t stop and wonder why,

Just face the sun, put this record on, and

The Beach Will Never Die

Non-Stop City

Here we are stuck in the heart of the city,

At this time of year, when the beach is so pretty, gotta,

Millions things I’d rather be doing now.

Sleazy bars, and all the German cars

Making all that noise, for a full 24 hours, gotta,

Million places I’d rather be at right now

And it seems like everybody’s running ‘round

Looking for things that can’t be found

 

The life in Non-Stop City goes on, ba baba, ba ba ba ba ba

The life in Non-Stop City goes on

 

I can’t wait to get back home again,

‘Cos the smoke smog and fog are just doing me in, and the

High-rise blocks are shutting out the sun

The fun of the beach seems so far away,

And the street seems the only place the kids have got to play in , and I,

Haven’t seen a cruncher since I don’t know when

And it seems like everybody’s running ‘round

Looking for things that can’t be found

 

The life in Non-Stop City goes on, ba baba, ba ba ba ba ba

The life in Non-Stop City goes on ba baba, ba ba ba ba ba

The life in Non-Stop City goes on, ba baba, ba ba ba ba ba

The life in Non-Stop City goes on ba baba, ba ba ba ba ba

The life goes on, The life goes on, The life goes on

ALONE ON THE BEACH TONIGHT

Driving my car by the sea, remembering when you were with me,

Distant lovers walk on the sand, how could I let you slip through my hand?

It’s just that you and I were never meant to grow,

And something I feel inside, tells me how much it hurts to be alone,

Alone on The Beach Tonight, (Nowhere to hide, I can’t swallow my pride)

Alone on the Beach Tonight

 

And walking under the pier, I hear you say, you’ll always be there,

I remember most of your lying, down where the coasters are sighing

I thought that you and I were heaven-sent you know,

Something I feel inside, tells me how much it hurts to be alone,

Alone on The Beach Tonight, (Nowhere to hide, I can’t swallow my pride)

Alone on the Beach Tonight

Alone on The Beach Tonight, (Nowhere to hide, I can’t swallow my pride)

HAWAII STOLE MY BABY

My girlfriend called to say, she was booking a holiday,

We had a fight when I said, "I plan to go to Harlyn Bay"

I haven’t heard from her for a couple of days,

When I called her folks, they said "She’s gone away"

 

Hawaii Stole My Baby, Hawaii Stole My Baby,

I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone

Hawaii Stole My Baby from me

 

Her Mum just said she took a plane last Saturday,

747 and her ticket was one-way,

Now I don’t know what I’m gonna do,

I guess it’s over now, she’s found something new

 

Hawaii Stole My Baby, Hawaii Stole My Baby,

I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone

Hawaii Stole My Baby from me

 

She sent a card to say, she won’t be coming back

I heard her Mum & Dad, nearly had a heart attack,

Now I’m surfing on my own,

Thinkin’ ‘bout the girl who won’t be coming home

 

Hawaii Stole My Baby, Hawaii Stole My Baby,

I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone

Hawaii Stole My Baby from me

Hawaii Stole My Baby from me

Hawaii Stole My Baby from me,

 

Hawaii, ….Hawaii, ….Hawaii….Hawaii

LET ‘EM EAT SURF

We’re down on the beach and we’ve just begun,

To get on down to some summer fun,

When some meathead squares in a Volkswagen van,

Try to muscle in on our piece of sand,

They got some disco blarin’ for all it’s worth,

Ah what do you say guys? LET ‘EM EAT SURF!

They come on acting like it’s all their turf

Ba ba baba ba ba ba Let Em Eat Surf

 

Now it’s okay when weekend comes around,

And the beach fills up with cats from outta town

We don’t care because there’s room enough,

And we’re not into that possession stuff

But those guys there really got some nerve,

Ah what do you say guys? LET ‘EM EAT SURF!

THE BEACH IS CALLING ME

Not so long ago since you first came ‘round

And since that time I’ve let my buddies down,

But there’s some things that I can’t resist and,

There’s some things that just can’t be missed, so

Baby, set me free (I’m hurting),

Baby let me be (It’s certain)

Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me

 

And though I love to be with you for sure

Oh I still feel I’m missing so much more

So don’t ask me to make a choice ‘cos

I’m always gonna be one of the boys, so

Baby, set me free (I’m hurting),

Baby let me be (It’s certain)

Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me

 

I don’t wanna rain on your parade

But I can’t take all the plans you made

I’ve thought about it now for quite some time and

Here comes tomorrow and it’s looking fine, so

Baby, set me free (I’m hurting),

Baby let me be (It’s certain)

Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me

Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me

Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me

LITTLE PHAETON ROADSTER

Well my brother brought it home when he totalled off his Mustang

Yeah Yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster

Bright cherry red and the envy of the whole gang

Yeah Yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster, (Little Phaeton Roadster)

We took it down to Santa Pod, just to see what she could do

All the guys in the other rods really dug the way she flew

 

When the light turns green nobody’s gonna catch her,

Yeah Yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster

Nought to 80, ain’t nobody faster

Yeah Yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster (Little Phaeton Roadster)

When I roll up to the grid every head would turn

Drop the clutch, hit the gas, smell that rubber burn!

 

Well my brother brought it home when he totalled off his Mustang

Yeah Yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster

OCEANSIDE PARK

I got a letter, said "You bet I wanna see you tonight,

Meet me there after dark,

When the light goes down on the west part of town,

Down at Oceanside Park".

 

It was a few years back, in a heatwave attack,

I was a teenage lonely heart,

She caught my eye as the ride went by,

Down at Oceanside Park

 

Did I know her from school? Well, she really looked cool, so I,

I asked Jimmy and Mark,

They came with me but we still couldn’t see her,

Down at Oceanside Park

 

Well I was helping my Dad clear some junk from his pad

I found a paper that tore me apart,

It was the girl who died on the Jackhammer Ride,

That year at Oceanside Park

 

I got a letter, said "You bet I wanna see you tonight,

Meet me there after dark,

When the light goes down on the west part of town,

Down at Oceanside Park".
