Nuclear Cop - Live Version - Lyrics

The sky is red and the earth is black
1990 and we haven't looked back
Got it on a jumbo, send it overseas
Got a lot of money now who needs trees?
We've all got jobs now, no more dole
Plenty of money now uranium's sold
I'll ensure supply won't stop
Because I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop
Well I guard the world and its plain to see
Look after you after looking after me
Of peace and safety I'll make sure
Least until someone offers me more
We've all got boats, planes and more
Twenty-five fingers that's a bore
Got no brains but I'm right at the top
I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop
It's never been better in this land of dreams
Cake and steak and American jeans
Stuart Highways sealed at last
They can get the ore to the airport fast
Adelaide galleries full of art
Nothing's too dear and for a start
Come and inspect your uranium shop
I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop
Sprinkled the waste around Ayers rock
Given the dingo a bit of a shock
It used to be a black mans sacred site
Now it glows like a neon light
Landscape like a Salvador Dali
We all spend our summers on Bali
Used to be a farmer till my sheep all dropped,
Doug Anthony made me a Nuclear Cop
We got a melt down, turn around, where do you hide?
Can't let your children play outside
Put your Geiger counter near your airtight door
Watch it jiggle and hear it roar
There's so much to celebrate
Living in Australia's uranium state
Parliament House is Leukemia Lodge
And standing at the door is a Nuclear Cop
