Words and Music by Don Walker.
Campbell lane,
And thru' the window curtain rain,
Long night gone, yellow day,
The speed shivers melts away.
Six o'clock I'm going down,
The coffee's hot and the toast is brown,
Hey! Street-sweeper, clear my way,
Sweethearts' breakfast the best in town.
Woh o-o-oh, Breakfast at Sweethearts.
Woh o-o-oh, Breakfast at Sweethearts.
Hey! Anne-Maria,
It's always good to see her,
She don't smile a flirt,
She just wears that mini-skirt,
Drunks come in
A paper bag Brandivino,
Dreams fly away
As she pulls another capucino.
Six o'clock I'm going down,
The coffee's hot and the toast is brown,
Hey! Street-sweeper, clear my way,
Sweethearts' breakfast the best in town.
Woh o-o-oh, Breakfast at Sweethearts.
Woh o-o-oh, Breakfast at Sweethearts.
At Six o'clock I'm going down,
The coffee's hot and the toast is brown,
Hey! Street-sweeper, clear my way,
Sweethearts' breakfast the best in town.
Six o'clock I'm going down,
The coffee's hot and the toast is brown,
Hey! Street-sweeper, clear my way,
Sweethearts' breakfast the best in town.
Breakfast at Sweethearts, ye-ah ye-e ye-e yeah.

    This is a song about a restaurant that jimmy barnes used to own on victoria road in sydney that was called sweethearts. Jimmy barnes used to work there in the kitchen making meals for people. One time I went there and ordered some hot coffee and brown toast and jimmy winked at me knowing that I understood the true meaning of the song.
    A beautiful song with a lot of emotion.
