As time passes us by it swoops across the bay
We hope that we can be found on our little hide away
I'll never ride cross the Great Sandy Desert
On a donkey or a mule
And I'll never bowl like Curtly Ambrose
But I'll be a fool for you

And if the rainbow's end is not around the next two turns
We're in a heap of trouble so let's get away from here
Best not to have great expectations
Keep your sights down low
You'd be best, avoid disappointment
On with the show, on with the show

Whistle as loud as you can
All your favourite Looney Tunes
You should fearlessly bay
When you're barking at the moon

And if the rainbow's end is not around the next two turns
We're in a heap of trouble so let's get away from here
Best not to have great expectations
Keep your sights down low
You'd be best, avoid disappointment
On with the show, on with the show

Hop on board the red cargo plane go far across the sea
And if you do you'll end up happy as you will ever be
As happy as a ripe mango tree

How many times have I warned you, I told you
Please don't give me the top job
Cause I'm much more comfortable
Being the pig pen in the mud

And if the rainbow's end is not around the next two turns
We're in a heap of trouble so let's get away from here
Best not to have great expectations
Keep your sights down low
You'd be best, avoid disappointment
On with the show, on with the show

And if the rainbow's end is not around the next two turns
We're in a heap of trouble so let's get away from here
Best not to have great expectations
Keep your sights down low
You'd be best, avoid disappointment
On with the show, on with the show
