  1. Definitely an Aussie classic. I have sung it many times in my glory days when I was a tad inebriated. A much better song than “I come from the land down under”…..hate that one.

    1. Haha – but Colin Hay is a Scottish-Australian just like you 🙂 It has been a bit overdone that song. It’s funny but this Hunters and Collectors song was never a hit but everyone knows it so well. I’ve been educating the kids on the big sound of Hunters and Collectors.

    1. Hahaha – I think it is a bit of a myth about Aussie blokes not being expressive or intimate. It is an interesting song – I find the lyrics quite ambiguous and sometimes I find the whole song rather threatening (like he’s a stalker or something) 😉
