About the song
Australia has been facing drought for quite a few years now and water usage is becoming a major problem. I guess we have to have a rethink about it all.
Lyrics
WHERE’S THE WATER GONE


There’s a rather sad phenomenon that’s plaguing our great land
And just like the wary gambler it’s about to play it’s hand.
All the signs have been quite evident and ‘round now for a spell
But we’ve fobbed them off, ignored them all, as far as I can tell.

From the times of early childhood when my fam’ly drove around
All the creeks were full of water and the bores were rather sound,
Sure enough the droughts they came and went but mate, I have to say
that our Nations running kind of dry, hard times are on the way.

Hey I think we’ve done our dash old son ‘cause what is going on.
All our dams and bores are getting low and where’s the water gone.
We will have to make some changes and mate make them pretty fast,
as the water’s disappearing and it sure as hell won’t last.

Though we’ve held bad hands in years gone by we’ve always lived in hope,
that the rains were some where in the deck and til then we would cope.
But the evidence is ominous and looking rather bleak
and we’d do well to consider all the havoc it could wreak.

We need each and every one of us to play a vital role,
as we’re playing for high stakes here and there’s need for self-control.
All will have to change the lifestyles that they’ve been accustomed to
And we’ll have to play our hands right and seek out an Ace or two.

Hey I think we’ve done our dash old son ‘cause what is going on.
All our dams are bores are getting low and where’s the water gone.
We will have to make some changes and mate make them pretty fast,
As the water’s disappearing and it sure as hell won’t last.
