The sky is red and the earth is black
1990 and we haven't looked back
Got it on a jumbo, send it overseas
Got a lot of money now who needs trees?

We've all got jobs now, no more dole
Plenty of money now uranium's sold
I'll ensure supply won't stop
Because I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop

Well I guard the world and its plain to see
I'll look after you after looking after me
Of peace and safety I'll make sure
At least until someone offers me more

We've all got boats, planes and more
Twenty-five fingers that's a bore
I've got no brains but I'm right at the top
Cos I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop

It's never been better in this land of dreams
Cake and steak and American jeans
Stuart Highway's sealed at last
They can get the ore to the airport fast

Adelaide galleries full of art
Nothing's too dear and for a start
I'll come and inspect your uranium shop
Cos I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop

Sprinkled the waste around Ayers rock
Given the dingos a bit of a shock
It used to be a black mans sacred site
Now it glows like a neon light

Landscape like a Salvador Dali
We all spend our summers on Bali
I used to be a farmer till my sheep all dropped
Doug Anthony made me a Nuclear Cop

Melt down, turn around, where do you hide?
Can't let your children play outside
Put your Geiger counter near your airtight door
Watch it jiggle and hear it roar

There's so much to celebrate
Living in Australia's uranium state
Parliament House is Leukemia Lodge
And standing at the door is a Nuclear Cop!
