Lyrics
Oh, I am a cheat and I'm a liar, oh, but you're a lovin' ball of fire
I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

I said, listen to me, baby, I gave up the lovin' trade
I'm tired of all this runnin', jumpin', playin'
But you're like it down under the world with the Australian girls
And there's not a word of truth in what you're sayin'

Oh, but I am a cheat and I'm a liar and you're a lovin' ball of fire
Honey, I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney

This is my greatest act, I've come boomerangin' back
Grinnin' like a Rudolf Valentino
But then you grab your travel load like a swingin' grimmin' dog
And hopped on that fast boat to Sydney

'Cause I'm a cheat and I'm a liar but you're a lovin' ball of fire
Honey, I'll leave you like a bum without a penny
And while I'm home with the blues, I'll be hopin' like a kangaroo
When I get off of that fast boat to Sydney
