Welcome All To Broome - Lyrics

Well I grabbed my camera, grabbed my zoom
Left my guitar in the hotel room
A few days here, I must presume
To know enough about life in Broome

Well I met this dark-eyed local girl
Has no time for mother o' pearl
The golf course and palm trees
The local girl likes none of these

She likes red sand and blue seas
Bush tucker in the trees
Give me wet season if you please
Sandpiper, gentle breeze

Well I talked to a man who has big dreams
Of multi-million dollar schemes
Of tourists pouring in in teems
Broome is not just what it seems

The holy dollar plays the tune
Original people movin' soon
All gone out to desert moon
Far away, away

From the red sand and blue seas
Bush tucker in the trees
Give me wet season if you please
Sandpiper, gentle breeze

(Bridge, whistled)

Gotta make this place respectable
Build a monster shopping mall
Paint a dragon on the wall
Bring your money, one and all

Do we welcome all to Broome
Do we welcome all to Broome
Welcome all to Broome
Welcome all to Broome

(red sand and blue seas)
(Bush tucker in the trees)
(Give me wet season if you please)
(Sandpiper, gentle breeze)
