Cooee Motel

Just a few miles till I see you smile
Ninety-odd k. to delivery day
Tryin’ to get to where you are

Now I’m passin’ trucks on
the Newell Highway
Pullin’ in music on 2PK
All the while ahead you wait

One last stop for petrol and,
Check the water as well
I’m meetin’ my love tonight
At the Cooee Motel

Saturday night got the call from you
Cooee Motel, room twenty-two
Setting up a rendezvous

Now I’m checkin’ the speedo
countin’ the miles
Hummin’ a tune, and twistin’ the dial
Slowly moving in on you.

One last stop for petrol and
Check the water as well
Yes I’m meeting my girl tonight
At the Cooee Motel

Cos’ this old heart is strong enough
If the car holds out long enough
Cos’ it’s all that I can do
To keep on lovin’ you…

One last stop for petrol and
Check the water as well
And as I pay at the counter
the attendant can tell
That I’m meetin’ my love tonight
At the Cooee Motel
