Members Of The MCC

tune: born to run [springsteen] words: john ogge-champion

1.

by day we sit in the boardrooms of
our Daddies’ companies
at night we drive down Balwyn Road
in our 4 wheel drive machines
raised on Melway map 59
we grew up living on the right side of the tramlines – woh –
baby my Volvo’s got a roof rack
and the private school kiddies in the back
they go to Wesley and Haileybury
and baby blokes like us we’re members of the MCC

2.

I keep the chains and the ski gear in the 4 car garage
For the long weekends
I’m tossing up between a Lexus and a Merc.
To go with my BM
Baby it’s been a long season
And I might go insane if I don’t escape to Dinner Plain – woh –
When we get through this financial year
If the Nasdaq’s right I’m gonna
Hit the slopes in France or Italy
and baby blokes like us we’re members of the MCC
3.
I’m gonna flash my medallion
Meet some friends of the old man
For a pre-game chardonnay
We’re gonna shoot the breeze about Securities
And find out who’s playin’ today
Baby I’m getting’ tired of all these jokers
who keep singing sarcastic songs about the Dees
and baby blokes like us we’re members of the MCC
