DOWN UNDER
(Colin James Hay / Ron Strykert)

Men At Work - 1982


Travelling 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...

"Oh! 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?

You better run, you better take cover

Hey Marty, you are an oldy arn't you?

That was the first time, I've seen the video hit/clip to our famous MEN AT WORK song - Land Down Under.

Can you please tell me what and why a guy is tugging along a stuffed looking animal thing?!

Go the Aussie shorts, shirt & tie, long socks & sandles look of the 80's!!

"Vegemite is one of several yeast extract spreads sold in Australia. It is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract (a by-product of beer manufacture) and various vegetable and spice additives. It is very dark reddish-brown, almost black, in color, and one of the richest sources known of Vitamin B. It's thick like peanut butter, it's very salty, and it tastes like - well let's just say that it is an acquired taste!"


See the link I post on the previous page......

OK, I put a bit on some buttered toast. Travis' reaction was to immediately spit it out and say "Yech!". James had a few bites before spitting it out and saying "yech". As for me, I'm not sure... it is rather strong but not as salty as I expected. I do have a stuffy nose right now and a sore throat so that may be skewering my taste buds. I will try it again, maybe it's something you have to eat a couple times first to enjoy. (I recall not particularly liking beer all that much at first too).
