"Postcard" as written by and John Entwistle....
[Chorus:]
We're having a lovely time, wish you were here
We're having a lovely time, wish you were here
There's miles of frankfurters and people who hurt us in Germany
We haven't played since yesterday
There's just ten more shows and one week to go
We'd all like to go

[Chorus]

Great piles of spaghetti, bad vibes like confetti in Italy
We go by train and not by plane
We'd come home by car if it wasn't too far
To drive home by car
Hope you're well at home,
Next week I'll try to phone,
Not very long to go,
I'll tell you when I'm coming home as soon as I know

[Chorus]

There's lots of French fries, disapproving eyes in the U.S.A.
We've had no shows since I don't know
There's just one thing wrong, we've been here too long
The money's all gone

[Chorus]

There's kangaroos and we're bad news in Australia
Thrown off the plane for drinking beer
So long on the plane it drove us insane
So long on the plane
Hope you're well at home,
Next week I'll try to phone
Not very long to go
I'll tell you when I'm coming home as soon as I know

[Chorus]

We've done very well, but we've been to hell and heaven as well

    General CommentA song John Entwistle wrote about travelling around the world on tour, and the bad experiences that come along with it. Most notably the bad time they had in Australia when Pete decided they would not tour here again.

    That is, until March/April this year when they toured, and I saw them on my birthday. Brilliant. He said they were extremely sorry they hadn't come before, because it's a lovely place. Made my year.
