It's a long hot road from Adelaide to Lincoln when the radiator's hissing steam
My heart's beating time to the front-end shake and I got my lights stuck on high beam
The K-Mart carpark in Whyalla's just a flat cracked concrete void
They don't sell many swimming pools with so many unemployed

And there's Lear jets over Kulgera
Where the dust dances in the heat
Sing a song for the poor young little rich country
As they buy it from under our feet
And LTDs in Hawker
And talk of a tracking base
Talking mineral yields in uranium fields
And looking like they own the place

Bundra's just a one-pub town they've got a horse by the only tree
Rooms are cheap, you get beer on Sundays and they don't need locks and keys
The confederate drank his Bourbon straight said "I've came from Mobile"
He said "You keep your blacks and your taxes down investment's so ideal"

And there's Lear jets over Kulgera
Where the dust dances in the heat
Sing a song for the poor young little rich country
As they buy it from under our feet
And LTDs in Hawker
And talk of a tracking base
Talking mineral yields in uranium fields
And looking like they own the place

Fairchild, Du-Pont, Levi Strauss
Union Carbide, Westinghouse
Comalco, Exxon, Remington
Utah, Santos, IBM
SKF for North Rock pride
Mitsubishi, ICI
Goodyear, Mobil, Davis Press
GM Roach, CBS

In the upper Flinders the lone Range Rover come from Con-Zinc Rio Tint
He had a bound prospectus in a leather briefcase and a snow job in fine print
Carte blanche from the mines department in a letter on a lambswool seat
The geiger counter sings of countless prizes at the depth of a hundred feet

And there's Lear jets over Kulgera
Where the dust dances in the heat
Sing a song for the poor young little rich country
As they buy it from under our feet
And LTDs in Hawker
And talk of a tracking base
Talking mineral yields in uranium fields
And looking like they own the place.
