Skyhooks - Over The Border lyrics

Macainsh

Well, I spent too long in the deep north, the land of the big peanut
It ain't that great in the police state, they burn down the hippy's huts
They turn back the clocks a decade, they bust you for no reason
The sun shines the whole year ‘round, the shotgun's still in season.

(Over the border) get me over the border
(Over the border) get me over the border
(Over the border) down to New South Wales.

The girls are sweet and juicy, oh, so brown and blonde
But watch out for the young ones, you won't get no bond
They don't treat you too well down in Boggo Jail
Make a break, make a break for the border with the dogs runnin' on your tail.

(Over the border) put some wind in my sails
(Over the border) get my wheels on the rails
(Over the border) down to New South Wales.

It's a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to stay
I might want to march in the street some day
But old Joe won't let me have my say
So I'll get on down to Coolongatta and get on my way, yeah.

(Get over the border) get this rocket on the rails
(Get over the border) put some wind in my sails
(Get over the border) I got my foot to the floor
I don't know what I went there for
(Get over the border) get me out of Queensland
I'm only going back with a gun in my hand
(Get over the border) I got me mango
(Get over the border) one day they're gonna hang Joe.

(Get over the border) put some wind in my sails
(Get over the border) get my wheels on the rails
(Get over the border) down to New South Wales.
