The Arse End Of The Earth Lyrics

GARETH EVANS:

Another morning in the PMC

We've got the latest on the CAD

It's only four percent of GDP

But it's causing little tremors at the NAB

You want your funding for the AME

We'll have to sneak it past the ERC

And the PMO observers of the GNE are nervous

It's another day of service in the ALP.

PAUL KEATING:

My land is burning with bureaucracy

To scared to contemplate its worth

Inert and dreaming of democracy

Too struck by sun to get things done

At the arse end of the earth.

EVANS:

Another morning in the monarchy

We've got the model from the RAC

About as minimal as it can be

But you might have blown your chances for an OBE

They're gonna try and pull the train off track

They're lining up to fly the Union Jack

And the tyranny of distance and the path of least resistance

And you gave the Queen assistance when you goosed her back.

KEATING:

We have one golden opportunity

To see our brand new flag unfurled

To rise with shining eyes in unity

It's hard to stand with heads in sand

At the arse end of the world

KEATING AND EVANS:

We can move this world

We can chance this place

Shifting inch by inch

At a glacial pace

Take it step by step

Build it brick by brick

Important innovations

And delicate equations

I'm running out of patience, can we make this quick?

Quick, quick, quick, quick, quick!

EVANS:

Another morning in the ACT

Remind Australia that we're young and free

But every channel seems to disagree

With the possible exception of the ABC

We're getting hammered by the tabloid press

We must be p**sing Rupert off, I guess

'Cos they're calling us elitist and the polling is defeatist

And we hope that every street is watching SBS!

BAND:

Oh yes! Oh yes!

KEATING:

We hear the siren song of destiny

A call to rapturous rebirth

We dare to recognise our history

The future's bright for black and white

At the arse end of the earth

What better place to make your base than the arse end of the earth?
