    "Yarra Song [*]" Lyrics

    Billy Bragg

    There's a chill tonight on the Yarra
    Winter is creeping in
    While far away my loved ones
    Wake up in England's spring

    And although delights await me
    All the way to Flinders Street
    It's that little piece of heaven
    With which they must compete

    When The Saints take on The Magpies
    Someday too far away

    I barrack for St. Kilda
    In that funny game they play
    But my heart's not really in it
    My mind wanders to a town
    Where The Hammers sing "I'm forever blowing bubbles"
    And the rain comes pouring down

    Yes, it's still raining in England
    Guess that's why I like it here
    There's a brolly in my hotel room
    For when the skies aren't clear

    'Cos it never rains in Sydney
    And it never rains in Perth
    Adelaide's a desert
    And Brisbane's just scorched earth

    So excuse me please such days as there
    And send me to the town
    Where the children sing when St. Kilda win
    And the rain comes falling down

    So wake me up tomorrow
    And send me home again
    To where The Hammers sing "I'm forever blowing bubbles"
    In the pouring London rain
