Standing on the Outside
by Cold Chisel

Standing on the outside lookin' in
Standing on the outside lookin' in
Oh-oh, I never strayed outside the law
Standing on the outside lookin' in

Room full of money and the born to win
No amount of work's gonna get me through the door
When I go walkin' down Bluewater Bay
Surface in the city at the end of the day

Oh-oh, I got a bad case of the benz
Standing on the sidewalk you can see
Somebody everybody wants to be
They got the means to justify every end

I had a friend broke through illegally
Pulled a job on a small-town T.A.B.
Five grand down on her own piece of Eden

And I know . . .
And I know . . .

The first thing I do when I get into town
Is buy a twenty-two and cut the whole thing down
No amount of work's gonna buy my way to Freedom

I'm on the outside lookin' in
Standing on the outside lookin' in
Oh Yeah!

As time marches on I feel increasingly like I'm standing on the outside, looking in.

MOONLIGHT SHADOW

It's called getting old.

I remember buying my first stereo a (kenwood) back 20+ years ago all because this song sounded so great

Jeff Thomas

Saw these at UNSW Roundhouse, early 80s, opened their set with this, set the tone for a faultless performance from start to finish. Great Aussie band!
