SPIRIT OF AUSTRALIA
(M:Pearce - L:Pearce/Gilling)
 

She took a long vacation from her Motherland,
And came with her friends to check out all her favourite bands.
All the guys liked to fun around, she liked to keep’em on the hook,
Next day when they’d come around she wouldn’t give’em a second look.

She was the Spirit of Australia, Spirit of Australia,
Oh she was blonde, and she was tanned,
Was like a bombshell hit the sand,
She was the Spirit of Australia.

Things really hotted up since she came ‘round here,
Looked like a beauty queen, Miss Southern Hemisphere,
She wore a blue swimsuit with her country’s flag upon it,
And when she’d shoot the curl, they’d call her the Bondi Comet.

She was the Spirit of Australia, Spirit of Australia,
Oh she was blonde, and she was tanned,
Was like a bombshell hit the sand,
She was the Spirit of Australia.

And when she’d shoot the curl, they’d call her the Bondi Comet.

She was the...
 
 
THE BEACH WILL NEVER DIE
(M:Pearce/ Dean. - L: Pearce)

Hey you remember when Joey’s place was the coolest place to go?
Whatever happenned to that DJ? Man does anybody know?
When I hear that it’s a car park now it makes me wanna cry,
But through all these years, we still come here, The Beach Will Never Die!

Hey you remember those friday nights kid would come from miles around,
To that little cellar down the alleyway,
Where they’d rock the ceiling down,
But nothing lasts forever, they say, but I say that’s a lie,
‘Cos through all this years, we still come here, The Beach Will Never Die!

Hey you remember those groovy times at the Whiskey sure were fun,
Driving home with the top pulled down, and the late night radio on,
Ah, if you’re feeling like the summer’s gone don’t stop to wonder why,
Just face the sun, put this record on and The Beach Will Never Die.
The Beach Will Never Die

Hey you remember when Joey’s place was the coolest place to go?
Whatever happenned to that DJ? Man does anybody know?
When I hear that it’s a car park now it makes me wanna cry,
But through all these years, we still come here (still come here),

The Beach Will Never Die, The Beach Will Never Die,
The Beach Will Never Die, The Beach Will Never Die.

 
NON-STOP CITY
(Music: Dean/Pearce. - Lyrics: Dean)

Here we are stuck in the heart of the city,
At this time of the year, when the coast is so pretty, gotta,
Million things I’d rather be doing now.

Sleazy bars and all that german cars,
Making all that noise for a full 24 hours, gotta,
Million places I’d rather be at right now.

And it seems like everybody’s running around,
Looking for things that can’t be found.

The life in Non-Stop City goes on, the life in Non-Stop City goes on.

I can’t wait to get back home again,
‘Cos the smoke, smog and fog are just doing me in, and the,
High-rise blocks are shutting out the sun.

The fun of the beach seems so far away,
And the street seems the only place the kids have got to play, and I,
Haven’t seen a cruncher since I don’t know when,

And it seems like everybody’s running around,
Looking for things that can’t be found.

The life in Non-Stop City goes on, the life in Non-Stop City goes on.
The life in Non-Stop City goes on, the life in Non-Stop City goes on.
The life in Non-Stop City goes on, the life in Non-Stop City goes on.
The life in Non-Stop City goes on, the life in Non-Stop City goes on.

The life goes on, the life goes on, the life goes on...

ALONE ON THE BEACH TONIGHT
(M+L: Pearce)

Driving my car by the sea, remembering when you were with me,
Distant lovers walk on the sand,
How could I let you slip through my hand?
It’s just that you and I were never meant to grow,
Something I feel inside tells me how much it hurts to be alone,

Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide),
I can’t swallow my pride, alone on the beach tonight.

And walking under the pier,
I hear you say, you’ll always be there,
I remember most of your lying,
Down when the coasters are sighing,
I thought that you and I were heaven-sent, you know,
Something I feel inside tells me how much it hurts to be alone,

Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide),
I can’t swallow my pride, alone on the beach tonight.
Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide),
I can’t swallow my pride, alone on the beach tonight.

And walking under the pier,
I hear you say, you’ll always be there,
I remember most of your lying,
Down when the coasters are sighing,
I thought that you and I were heaven-sent, you know,
Something I feel inside tells me how much it hurts to be alone,

Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide),
I can’t swallow my pride,
Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide),
I can’t swallow my pride,
Alone on the beach tonight, (nowhere to hide)
I can’t swallow my pride,
Alone on the Beach Tonight.
 

HAWAII STOLE MY BABY
(M+L: Pearce/Dean)

My girlfriend called to say she was booking a holiday,
we had a fight when I said, “I plan to go to Harlyn Bay”.
I haven’t heard from her for a couple of days,
When I called her folks, they said “She’s gone away.”

Hawaii stole my baby, Hawaii stole my baby,
I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone
Hawaii stole my baby from me.

Her mum just said she took, a plane last Saturday,
747, and her ticket was one-way,
Now I don’t know what I’m gonna do,
I guess it’s over now, she’s found something new.

Hawaii stole my baby, Hawaii stole my baby,
I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone
Hawaii stole my baby from me.
Hawaii stole my baby, Hawaii stole my baby,
I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone
Hawaii stole my baby from me.

She sent a card to say she won’t be coming back,
I heard her mum and dad nearly had a heart attack,
Now I’m surfing on my own,
Thinking ‘bout the girl who won’t be coming home.

Hawaii stole my baby, Hawaii stole my baby,
I never thought she’d go alone, now I’m waiting by the phone
Hawaii stole my baby from me.
Hawaii stole my baby from me...

Hawaii, Hawaii, Hawaii, Hawaii...
 

LET’EM EAT SURF!
(M+L: Pearce)

We’re down on the beach and we’ve just begun,
To get on down to some summer fun,
When some meathead squares in a Wolkswagen van,
Try to muscle in our piece of sand,
They’ve got some disco balaring for all it’s worth,
Ah, what do you say guys? LET’EM EAT SURF!

Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf,
Let’em eat surf, they come on acting like it’s all their turf,
Let’em eat surf!

Now it’s okay when weekend comes around,
And the beach fills up with cats from out of town,
We don’t care because there’s room enough,
And we’re not into that possesion stuff,
But those guys there really have some nerve,
Ah, what do you say guys? LET’EM EAT SURF!

Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf,
Let’em eat surf, they come on acting like it’s all their turf,
Let’em eat surf!
 
Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf,
Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf!.

Now it’s okay when weekend comes around,
And the beach fills up with cats from out of town,
We don’t care because there’s room enough,
And we’re not into that possesion stuff,
But those guys there really have some nerve,
Ah, what do you say guys? LET’EM EAT SURF!

Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf, Let’em eat surf,
Let’em eat surf, they come on acting like it’s all their turf,
Let’em eat surf!

Yeah? You and whose army, knucklehead?
Hey, don’t touch that man!
Ahh, rack off you big turkey!
Here he comes and he looks real mad!
Nah, don’t worry about that, he wouldn’t hit a guy wearing shades!
Hey- wait! – give me that back!. Oh no, man! Not my Ray Bans! %¿/”!
 

THE BEACH IS CALLING ME
(M: Pearce/Dean L: Pearce)

Not so long ago since you first came ‘round,
And since that time I’ve let my buddies down,
But there’s some things that I can’t resist, and,
There’s some things that just can’t be missed, so,

Baby set me free (I’m hurting), Baby let me be (It’s certain),
Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me.

And ‘though I love to be with you for sure,
Oh, I still feel I’m missing so much more,
So don’t ask me to make a choice, ‘cos,
I’m always gonna be one of the boys, so,

Baby set me free (I’m hurting), Baby let me be (It’s certain),
Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me.

I don’t wanna rain on your parade,
But I can’t take all the plans you’ve made,
I’ve thought about it for quite some time, and,
Here comes tomorrow and it’s looking fine, so

Baby set me free (I’m hurting), Baby let me be (It’s certain),
Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me,
(Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me),
Can’t you see? The Beach Is Calling Me.
 

LITTLE PHAETON ROADSTER
(M: dean/Pearce – L: Pearce/Gilling)

Well my brother brought it home when he totalled off his Mustang,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster,
Bright cherry red, and the envy of the whole gang,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster, Little Phaeton Roadster,
We took it down to Santa Pod, just to see what she could do,
All the guys in the other rods really dug the way she flew.

When the light turns green nobody’s gonna catch her,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster,
0 to 80, ain’t nobody faster,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster, Little Phaeton Roadster,
When I roll up to the grid every head would turn,
Drop the clutch, hit the gas, smell that rubber burn.

My brother brought it home when he totalled off his Mustang,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster,
Bright cherry red, and the envy of the whole gang,
Yeah, yeah, Little Phaeton Roadster, Little Phaeton Roadster,
We took it down to Santa Pod, just to see what she could do,
All the guys in the other rods really dug the way she flew.
 

OCEANSIDE PARK
(M+L: Pearce)

I got a letter said “You bet I wanna see you tonight,
Meet me there after dark,
When the light goes down on the west part of town,
Down at Oceanside Park.”

It was a few years back in a heatwave attack,
I was a teenage lonely heart,
She caught my eye as the ride went by,
Down at Oceanside Park”

Did I know her from school? Well, she really looked cool, so I,
I asked Jimmy and Mark,
They came with me but we still couldn’t see her.
Down at Oceanside Park.

Well i was helping my dad clear some junk from his pad,
I found a paper that tore me apart.
It was the girl who died on the Jackhammer ride,
That year at Oceanside Park.

I got a letter said “You bet I wanna see you tonight,
Meet me there after dark,
When the light goes down on the west part of town,
Down at Oceanside Park.”
