One day
I slept such a long time
Womb-like
And I woke to find
The city a funeral pyre
Landmarks twisted
Harbour Bridge was lifted
Sleeping in the sea
In sweet harmony
See, all my life I'd waited
For nothing to do
Like a sickle moon suspended
Looking down on you
But you're buried by trouble
So I'll make do
Luna Park over the water
Clown's face grimaced back at me
Across the sea
So I climbed
On the back of a starved horse
Then I fell and I hit my head
Crawled back to bed
And there's no older brothers
Or women in the wing
Or cellar in the basement
To take away the sting
And you're buried by trouble
And other things
For see all my life I'd waited
For nothing to do
Like a sickle moon suspended
Staring at the view
Where they're all buried by trouble
But they'll make do
So I'll I'll I'll
Learn to build a fire
And I'll I'll I'll
Learn to mend and sew
And I'll I'll I'll
Try to wield a hammer
And I'll I'll I'll
Learn to pan for gold
