Split Enz – Marooned lyrics

Pull up a flag, or light a fire, or send up a flare
Build me a beacon, seems there's no other way out of here
Inform the local correspondent
Tell him to phone in, tell the papers, put it over the air

I'm marooned(?)

Build me a schooner, or a punt, or a dug-out canoe
A Sputnik, a bi-plane, just a rusty jalopy will do
Call the folks and say I'm castaway
I'll even resort to taking chances in a hot air balloon

Marooned, marooned...
