Fast Boat to Sydney – Mono Version

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Oh I am a cheat and I’m a liar
Oh but you’re a loving ball of fire
I’ll leave you like a bum without a penny
And while I’m home with the blues
I’ll be hoping like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

[Verse 1]
I said listen to me babe
I gave up the loving trade
I’m tired of all this running jumping playing
But you’re like it down under
The world with the Australian girls
And there’s not a word of truth in what you’re saying

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
This is my greatest act
I’ve come boom a ranging back
Grinning like a Rudolf Valentino
But then you grab your travel load
Like a swinging grimming dog
And hopped on that fast boat to Sydney

[Chorus]
Because I am a cheat and I’m a liar
Oh but you’re a loving ball of fire
I’ll leave you like a bum without a penny
And while I’m home with the blues
I’ll be hoping like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney
