Lyrics

WE’RE REAL AUSSIES
© 2007 Craig Stewart
Capo on 2nd fret
C F
Well, there’s been a bit of talk, goin’ round of late
C G
About the lack of lovely ladies, flowin’ by the gate
C F
So the boys got together, and hatched ourselves a plan
C G C
To bring out the Sunrise spunky weatherman

So we waited & we waited & then like a tornado
She rocked into town in the big Winnebago
They thought the big story, was gonna be the drought
But as the cameras started rollin, the boys sang out

CHORUS
F C
We’re real Aussies and we don’t care
G C
When you last shaved your legs, or dyed your flamin’ hair
F C Am
So if you wanna put yourself in a really good possie,
C G C
Come and grab a bloke who’s a dinki-di Aussie

Well as you can imagine, it didn’t take long
For the first lot to arrive who’d heard our little song
They brought ‘em up from Sydney in every shape and size
There were half a dozen lookers, but the rest hurt your eyes

So we took ‘em down the pub, to sink a drink or three
Hopin’ it’d help improve the scenery
And sure enough by later it was all lookin’ sweet,
We were pullin’ out the lines, they were fallin’ at our feet, Oh
(CHORUS)

Every Friday night, we’d get the same reaction
A fresh lot would arrive all lookin’ for some action
The word had got around about our simple country charm
And the fact that life is better, with a fella on a farm

But it was getting’ flamin’ hard to sort the wheat from the chaff
The quality was up, and they weren’t goin’ back
Now the main street of town, is lookin’ like Eden
But we’re getting’ kinda tired of all the sheilas from Sweden, Ohhhh
(CHORUS)
SOLO OVER CHORUS

So if you’re a bloke out livin’ on the land
Could you do us all a favour, and come and lend a hand
The ratio is getting’ up around ten to one
It’s got beyond a joke, the joint’s becomin’ overrun

And the spunky weatherman came to do another spiel
Tryin’ to take the credit for our sex appeal
But I’ll bet you’re all regrettin’, we were on the TV
Since she chucked in the job, and shacked up with me

(CHORUS X 2)
