Steve Taylor – Down Under lyrics

Down under
Ever wonder how you got in?
Down under
Down under
Pick a cell you'd like to rot in
Down under
Carlos went from college to a prison suit
Asking for election day
Didn't care to lick El Presidente's boots
Got that, Pinochet?
Down under
Disappeared without a trial
Down under
Down under
We don't have that name on file
Down under
Ivan told his brothers in the fellowship
Not to tow the party line
Now he gets to take a sentimental trip
To a prison mine
Down under
Would you care for bread and water?
Down under
This was Daddy's alma mater
Ain't no Yankee jive
Ain't no commie plot
I don't lean left or right
I stand on solid rock
We hold this truth
To be as dear to life as bread
People think better
When they don't have a gun at their head
Miko looked around and saw her Seoul on ice
Organized a student parade
Someone told the state police to shoot on sight
And they all obeyed
Down under
Say the word and we will lock you
Down under
Down under
Doctors here will likely shock you
Down under
Down under
Down under
Down under
