about

Now every summer it rains all night and steams all day...and we get an extra month of it! OK so we can extend the growing season..all good! I guess the grass is always greener...

lyrics

BRISBANE RAIN

ITS RAINING HERE IN BRISBANE AND THE SUN KEEPS POURING DOWN
THIS TOWN IS MORE LIKE SINGAPORE I THINK WE’RE GONNA DROWN
SUMMER MONSOON WAY TOO LONG GOT THE GLOBAL WARMING BLUES
AND EVERY NIGHT THE WEATHER LADY GIVES US MORE BAD NEWS

WELL I DROVE UP HERE FROM MELBOURNE LOOKING FOR A LITTLE HEAT
SICK AND TIRED OF COLD AND WET I WANNA WEAR BARE FEET
NOW I’M SWEATIN ALL THE TIME THINKING OF FITZROY
MY WASHINGS ROTTING ON THE LINE SUN ALL DAY AND RAIN ALL NIGHT

CHORUS:
BRISBANE RAIN KEEPS COMING DOWN ITS A SOUTH EAST ASIAN BIG COUNTRY TOWN
BRISBANE RAIN KEEPS COMING DOWN
HOT AND WET WET AND HOT GOTTA GET BACK DOWN SOUTH AGAIN

WELL I’M STUCK UP HERE IN BRISBANE AND I DUNNO WHAT TO DO
COULD GET ON A PLANE TO SPAIN ESCAPE THIS STEAMIN BREW
THIS HEAT IS TOO VOLUPTUOUS I COULD BE IN VIETNAM
THAT MUDDY BRISBANE RIVER LOOKS JUST LIKE THE MEKONG IN THIS RAIN
