06:03 pm - Hey true blue
Is it me and you?

Is it mum and dad?

Is it a cockatoo?


What sort of goddamn lyrics are these? Obviously designed for the terribly jingoistic amongst us, all of whom wept at Steve Irwin's televised memorial and sung live by John Williams.

Nothing could have been more Australian than that.

Give us a home among the gum trees, with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two and a kangaroo. Koalas up the side, and veggies by the fence, all in Burke's Backyard.

I think I shall retch up my McDonalds McDinner now.

Those lyrics were typed from memory so I hope they're about right.

Pink Floyd - The Post War Dream

THE POST WAR DREAM

Tell me true, tell me why was Jesus crucified?
Is it for this that daddy died?
Was it for you? was it me?
Did I watch too much TV?
Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes?

If it wasn't for the nips
Being so good at building ships
The yards would still be open on the clyde.
And it can't be much fun for them
Beneath the rising sun
with all their kids committing suicide.

What have we done? Maggie, what have we done?
What have we done to England?
Should we shout? Should we scream?
"What happened to the post war dream?"
Oh, Maggie, Maggie, what have we done?

I can't take credit for the lyrics. I hunted them up off another website. Such is my usual recourse when I don't know the answer. {grin}
