Men at Work (Lawn Down Under)

Men at work fue un grupo Australiano de los 80´s, y una de sus canciones se volvió emblemática para los Australianos. Aquí el video y la letra de Lawn down under para los de base 30 seguro que se acordarán de esta canción, en ella usan palabras que son de uso común en Australia, por ejemplo:

- Vegemite, no he probado aún pero dicen que es horrible.

-Lawn down under, es una de las forma en la cual se denomina a Australia


La letra:

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?
Cant you hear, cant 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
Cant you hear, cant you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Lying 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,

Oh! do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Cant you hear, cant you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.
