Lyrics

Rustys Bar

Written By: Michael Laman Thomas

Title: Rustys Bar
Writer: Michael Laman Thomas
Performer: Brothers Gibson

Well it’s two for one at the Rustys Bar and maybe we’ll play some pool
But not before you remind me of the Queensland rules
Well she looks high and he looks stoned and that’s the way it goes
When you’re playing for protection from the lonely road

Chorus
The northern rain sets in
Mosquitoes in the back door
The ceiling fans rotate
To the drumming on the tin roof
Down at the Rustys Bar

Well it’s closing time at the Rustys Bar
And we’re all heading out
We’re going down the Wool Shed
To scream and shout
There’s a guy at the bar got a beard down to his knees of thirty years
He gave thanks to his country but forgot to say please

Chorus
The northern rain sets in
Mosquitoes in the back door
The ceiling fans rotate
To the drumming on the tin roof

And that’s the way it goes
Down at the Rustys Bar
We were down at the Rustys Bar

Bridge
Well it took them more than three months just to realise
That the road to Surfers Paradise was bitumenized
With a heart that’s only broken in a fairy tale
And a bed that’s full of roses that are still for sale

(Chorus times 2)
The northern rain sets in
Mosquitoes in the back door
The ceiling fans rotate
To the drumming on the tin roof

You left when you walked in
Down at the Rustys Bar

Ant Song

Written By: Michael Laman Thomas

Sitting here in the morning sun
Gonna be an ant on the train later on
Gonna ride the train til my hair falls out
In a change that's overdue
Feeling my age
In a quiet kind of rage
Watch the other ants
They don't want to smile
Knowing that a smile is out of style
They can't look at me
They learnt that on TV

Chorus
I'm just looking for an angel song
I want to hear an angel song
Knowing that I can't begin
Until I hear an angel sing

Sitting here in Sydney town
It's fashion week and they all compete
Watch the kids line up at the fashion gate
Just to see who's over weight
I can see they've got some style
But I still ain't seen one smile
They do the pony step
Then look at uncle Ted
He's got all the gold beneath his bed
It don't mean much to me
I saw that on TV

Chorus
I'm just looking for an angel song
I gotta here an angel song
knowing that I can't belong
Until I hear an angel song

Well it's time to go now
Gonna hit the road now
Going back to where the angels fell before
But they don't know me anymore
In a chamber in the mind
A crystal ball resides
Telling me there's highs before there's lows
But that don’t mean much to me
I heard that on TV

I’m just looking for an angel song... chorus 1 and 2 end
