Adelaide 
On a plane 
Far from the united states 
Of LA 
Dropping in from outer space 
Takes a day 
Now I see the Bogans 
At the motor race 
Here you know the world could turn 
Or crash and burn 
And you would never know it 
Going where the air is clear 
There's better beer in Adelaide 

Charlie L. Smith's forty 
Someone spiked my rice 
The rest, history 
Now I am a fixture down 

Rundle Mall 
Watching as the locals pass 
Silver balls 
I can see their eyes around 
They're pointed down 
They scan the spanning sidewalks 
Learning that there is no hurry 
Fuss or worry 
Adelaide 

It's raining 
In Adelaide 
A face is waiting in a window 
A voice says 
Why Adelaide 
You could live anywhere and I say 
Because I want to 
Because I want to 
I really really want to 

And you know the earth could turn 
Or crash and burn 
And you would never know it 
Really got to make it to the finish line 
Get the record done on time 
Pack the bags 
And catch a flight 
And you can kiss my ass goodbye 
On Adelaide 
Adelaide 
Adelaide 
Adelaide
