John Schumann

John Lewis Schumann (born May 1953) is an Australian singer, songwriter and guitarist from Adelaide. He is best known as the lead singer for the folk group Redgum, with their chart-topping hit "I Was Only 19 (A Walk in the Light Green)", a song exploring the psychological and medical side-effects of serving in the Australian forces during the Vietnam War. The song's sales assisted Vietnam Veterans during the 1983 Royal Commission into the effects of Agent Orange and other chemical defoliants employed during the war. Schumann was an Australian Democrats candidate in the 1998 Federal election, narrowly failing to unseat Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer for the Division of Mayo. more »

Hey look over there at who the cat's dragged in
With a Grand Prix driver and a "look at me" grin
You know the manager, you don't have to queue
Because these are your yuppy days
Are you just passing through

You went to Montessori kindy, You're a Ravenswood girl
Finishing school, then a trip around the world
Those advertising agencies eyes are on you
Because these are your yuppy days
Are you just passing through

Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy

You bought an RX7 because you can't afford a Porsche
Your brand new man wears a Rolex of course
At the end of your rainbow is a BMW
These are your yuppy days
Are you just passing through

I read how you flow off to the Austrian snow
With Mandarina Duckand sipping Verve Cliquot
Alpine lodge with a million dollar view
And a couple of your yuppy friends who are just passing through

Well it's one for your money 
And two for your show
Three for the mortage on your new chateau
Four for your attitude
Five for your taste
These are your yuppy days, these are your yuppy days

Well it's one for your money 
And two for your show
Three for the mortage on your new chateau
Four for your attitude
Five for your taste
These are your yuppy days, these are your yuppy days

Yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy

You can get into places where others can't go
With the tags on your rags and the people you know
A little nip and tuck and a nose job too
These are your yuppy days that you're just passing through

Pardon my laughter, pardon my mirth
You're thick between the ears and getting thick around the girth
Those New Right arguments are working on you
These are your yuppy days are you just passing through

Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
Ooh yupp yupp Ooh yuppy yuppy
