Oh, Michael, all the lines are down, it's Australia Day again,
Everytime the wheel slows down, I think of all my friends,
Whatever happened to the days way back (when) the Bondi Lifesaver was always raging,
I'm standing here in Oxford Street, and the ghosts are howlin'
And geez, it's raining

I said: "don't waste time. these are the best years of our lives,"
I said: "don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives"

I wish I had been around when the Bondi Icebergs reigned
Sometimes I sit and think of it, and I dream of better days,
Whatever happened to the days way back, in the 1930s
All those endless parties,
I'm still too young to understand, how it was back then
When the party ends

I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives,"
I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives"


They say the circle turns around, there'll be better days,
And I don't mind waiting
I wish time had stopped ten years ago,
But I'm learning slowly, life is always changing

I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives,"
I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives"

I got a letter from Dr. Pepper, ten thousand words to the page,
He was talking about Gurdjieff, and I dozed off about half way,
Whatever happened to the days way back, when the world was safe
And it seemed worth saving,
We search for leaders on our hands and knees
But don't ask David, 'cause he's still crazy


I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives,"
I said, "Don't waste time, these are the best years of our lives" (x3)
