Hey True Blue
Don't say you've gone
Say you've knocked off for a smoko
And you'll be back later on
Hey True Blue

Hey True Blue
Give it to me straight
Face to face
Are you really disappearing
Just another dying race
Hey True Blue

True Blue
Is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad
Is it a cockatoo
Is it standing by your mate
When he's in a fight
Or will she be right
True Blue
I'm asking you

Hey True Blue
Can you bear the load
Will you tie it up with wire
Just to keep the show on the road
Hey True Blue

Hey True Blue
Now be fair dinkum
Is your heart still there
If they sell us out like sponge cake
Do you really care
Hey True Blue

True Blue
Is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad
Is it a cockatoo
Is it standing by your mate
When she's in a fight
Or will she be right
True Blue
I'm asking you

True Blue
Is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad
Is it a cockatoo
Is it standing by your mate
When he's in a fight
Or will she be right
True Blue
True Blue
