Down Under
Men at Work Lyrics


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 muscle
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

Lyin' 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

Oh, you come from a land down under? (Ooh, 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 ('cause we are)

Living in a land down under
Where women glow and men plunder
(Can't you hear thunder) 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? (Ooh yeah)
Better run, you better take cover (we are)

Living in a land down under (ooh yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder
Can't you, can't you hear the thunder?
Better run, you better take cover

Living in a land down under (living in a land down under)
Where women glow and men plunder
Can't you, can't you hear the thunder?

This song was so popular they made a whole country based on it.

Worked like a charm; Especially after they fired up the Mick Dundee-bot 5000

As an extremely proud australien I can commend this as the height of the culture whjich I have not appropriated, but living there I can confirmo that yes, it can be extremely difficult not to fall off.

Recuerdo cuando fui niño mi papá escuchaba esta canción, lastimosamente falleció hace 10 años y aun lo recuerdo como si fuera ayer. Esta música es como el vino, mientras mas años pasa, mas mejor se pone.

lo lamento por tu padre, pero por otro lado, te legó esta música que alimenta el alma
