Song Lyrics:
I was down by Manly Pier, drinkin' tubes of ice cold beer
With a bucket full of prawns upon me knee
When I swallowed the last prawn,
I had a technicolor yawn
and I chundered in the old Pacific Sea

Drink it up, drink it up,
Crack another dozen tubes and prawns with me
If you want to throw your voice,
mate you won't have any choice
But to chunder in the old Pacific Sea

I was sittin in the surf, when a mate of mine called Murf
Asks if he can crack a tube or two with me
The bastard barely swallowed it
When he went for the big spit
and he chundered in the old Pacific Sea

Drink it up, drink it up
Crack another dozen tubes and prawns with me
If you want to throw your voice,
mate you won't have any choice
But to chunder in the old Pacific Sea

I've had liquid laughs in bars and I've hurled from moving cars
And I've chuckled when and where it suited me
But if I could choose the spot
To regurgitate me lot,
then I'd chunder in the old Pacific Sea

Drink it up, drink it up
Crack another dozen tubes and prawns with me
If you want to throw your voice,
mate you won't have any choice
But to chunder in the old Pacific Sea

Thanks, Judge. I added the Sydney angle when I googled it again and I saw pictures with it spelled 'Manly'. They must have named it a looong time ago. Can't name something that these days without some type of connotation attached to it all. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I don't know the song, but I suspect that it's "Manley", which I think is in Sydney.

Doesn't hurt to ask and we've Australian members who might know this.

In the first line of this song, is it spelled the way it sounds-"Manly" Pier or some other way like "Manleigh"? I'd like to get this right. I've searched for it and have seen both and another version that says it's "Bondi" Pier, though that's not what's sung in this one.
