Traveling in a fried-out combie 
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie 
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous 
She took me in and gave me breakfast 
And she said

Do you come from a land down under?
 Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover 

 Buying bread from a man in Brussels 
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles 
I said, "do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said

I come from a land down under  Where beer does flow and men chunder 
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover, yeah

Lyin' in a den in Bombay 
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, "are you trying to tempt me
 Because I come from the land of plenty?"
And he said

Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
 Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover 

 Living in a land down under  Where women glow and men plunder 
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover 

 Living in a land down under  Where women glow and men plunder 
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover 

 Living in a land down under  Where women glow and men plunder 
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover 

 Living in a land down under  Where women glow and men plunder 
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
