Reckless (1983)

Melbourne band Australian Crawl feel lost in Sydney:

Meet me down by the jetty landing
Where the pontoons bump and spray
I see the others reading, standing
As the Manly Ferry cuts its way to Circular Quay

Hear the captain blow his whistle
So long she’s been away
I miss our early morning wrestle
Not a very happy way to start the day

She don’t like that kind of behavior
She don’t like that kind of behavior

So, throw down your guns
Don’t be so reckless
Throw down your guns
Don’t be so

Feel like Scott of the Antarctic
Base camp too far away
A Russian sub beneath the Arctic
Burke and Wills and camels, initials in the tree

She don’t like that kind of behavior
She don’t like that kind of behavior

So, throw down your guns
Don’t be so reckless
Throw down your guns
Don’t be so

 James Reyne, Australian, 1957-
