"Under the Name of Spain" as written by David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy, Jean Jacques Burnel and Hugh Alan Cornwell....
Found a place in the southern reaches
A day or two in a saddle ride
If you're looking for leather breeches
They've got some damn good hides
If you're looking for the wild country
And you can live without John Wayne
There's a place that is down in history
Under the name of Spain
Under the name of Spain

If you want to leave the clouds behind you
Take a walk into sunshine
Plenty of it in the southern reaches
Where they're making future wine
Looks a little like California
Prickly pears and rolling plains
It's a place I could fly my flag today
Under the name of Spain
Under the name of Spain

We knew that it was love at first sight

Watch them move into the future
Got a lot of catching up to do
Hope they take a lesson from their neighbours
That'll show 'em what not to do
Should've happened for them in the 30's
But the pleasure got caught in pain
Ended up like the bull in the china shop
Under the name of Spain
Under the name of Spain

We knew that it was love at first sight
We knew that it was love at first sight
