Lyrics:

There's an island on the other side of nowhere
It's a world turned upside down
And the people there they don't care
'Bout the rise and fall or the writings on the wall

And the sun goes down on the eastern coast
And the waves roll in on Bondi
The smell of coconut oil on deep brown skin
And a cold, cold Tooheys in my hand

They call it Australia
It's a world all on it's own
They call it Australia
And if I had my way, I would call it home

Sunday afternoons never come too soon
And there never is a hazy day to see
Sunday afternoons never come too soon
And every day's a lazy day for me

When the sun goes down it's another world
And the moon shines bright on the city
There's a cool, cool breeze on my face and
A lovely lady right by my side

They call it Australia
It's a world all on it's own
They call it Australia
And if I had my way, I would call it home
