lyrics

Another dark December night,
Antipodean distance.
The moon is down. The stars are bright,
Reminiscent pictures.
Wattles' gold. The shades of green.
Jacaranda in the trees,
Cool Antarctic southern breeze
Blowing in for Christmas.

But here I am on the other side
Of the world that I believe in.
Trying just to lend a hand
Make a kind of difference.
Talking on the telephone
Wishing I could be back home
With all the things I really know
A Jacaranda Christmas.
A Jacaranda Christmas.

Jacaranda in the trees.
Golden beaches, sky and sea.
End of year festivities.
Carols sung on Christmas eve'.

Summer sunsets linger on.
Never-ending vistas.
Cricket on the neighbour's lawn,
'til somebody missed us.
Boxing Day. Full MCG.
Lots of reruns on T.V.
Doing anything we please.
A Jacaranda Christmas.
A Jacaranda Christmas.

Jacaranda in the trees.
Golden beaches, sky and sea.
End of year festivities.
Carols sung on Christmas eve'.

Days and weeks in the burning sun.
Dry river beds and fissures.
Cannot leave 'til the job is done.
The locals here still need us.
The common values that we know,
Are more than twenty centuries old.
Held within a story told.
A Jacaranda Christmas.
A Jacaranda Christmas.
A Jacaranda Christmas.
