Fast Boat To Sydney

Lyrics written by: Jennifer

Johnny Cash: Oh, I’m a cheat and I’m a liar
June Carter: Oh, but you’re a loving ball of fire
Johnny: I’ll leave you like a bum without a penny
June: And while I’m home with the blues
Johnny: I’ll be hopping like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

Johnny: I said listen to me, babe, I gave up the loving trade
I’m tired of all this running, jumping, playing
June: But you like it down under the world with the Australian girls
And there’s not a word of truth in what you’re saying

Johnny: Oh, but I’m a cheat and I’m a liar
June: And you’re a loving ball of fire
Johnny: Honey, I’ll leave you like a bum without a penny
June: And while I’m home with the blues
Johnny: I’ll be hopping like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

Johnny: This is my greatest act
I’ve come boomeranging back
Grinning like a Rudolph Valentino
June: But then you grab your travel log
Like a swinging, grinning dog
And hop on that fast boat to Sydney

Johnny: Cause I’m a cheat and I’m a liar
June: But you’re a loving ball of fire
Johnny: Honey, I’ll leave you like a bum without a penny
June: And while I’m home with the blues
Johnny: I’ll be hopping like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney
