"Nuclear Device" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
I'm the wizard of aus
And I've got it all planned
For my first nuclear device

I don't really care about which way you vote
'Cos my gerrymander works out fine
I sell desert stretches like a big rubber glove
To Japan for a nuclear device

Nuclear device
Nuclear device
Nuclear device

If I could get lucky I'd secede from the states
I'd buy the country at an incredible rate

Brisbane men stay at home at night
'Cos I outlawed all of the vice (outlawed all of the vice)
I'm the wizard of aus
And I've rolled the streets
Dreaming of a nuclear device (nuclear device)

If I could get lucky I'd go out on my own
And sell Australia the rice (rest of aus' their rice)

Nuclear device
Nuclear device
Nuclear device

If I could get lucky I'd secede from the states
I'd buy the country at an incredible rate
If I could get lucky I'd secede from the states
I'd buy the country at an incredible rate
If I could get lucky I'd secede from the states
I'd buy the country at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate
at an incredible rate

Way down under Australia (Australia)
Very different from over here (Australia)
Getting rid of Abo's one by one (Australia)
Buy cheap land for uranium (Australia)
It reminds me of Sweden (Australia)
All the animals look so strange (Australia)
All victims of a testing range (Australia)
Of a testing range (Australia)
Of a testing range (Australia)
Of a testing range (Australia)
Of a testing range (Australia)
Of a testing range (Australia)

    General CommentThe opening lines are missing:

    "First and last men walked this earth..." {i.e Australia}
    "But only a few survive"

    Those lines refer to the theory that the human race began in Australia (and that Australia would be the last inhabitable part of the world after a nuclear war in the northern hemisphere).
    The last few lines of the song refer to Hugh's theory that Australian wildlife are descended from victims of "pre-historic" nuclear weapons testing by aliens. (This was, of course, "Meninblack" era!)

    The main part of the song is about the Queensland-based fascist politician Joh Bjeleke Pedersen.
