The sky is red and the earth is black 
            D               G 
1990 and we haven't looked back 
G       
Load it on a jumbo, send it overseas

Got a lot of money now who needs trees ?

'cause I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop 

G
I guard the world and its plain to see 
                D             G 
I'll look after you after looking after me 
G
Of peace and safety I'll make sure 
                       D         G    
At least until someone offers me more 

Chorus
G     C              G              D 
We've all got boats, planes and more 
G                   C        D
Twenty-five fingers that's a bore 
     C                     G
I've got no brains but I'm right at the top 
D          G           C            D
'cause I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop 


G
It's never been better in this land of dreams 
               D            G
Cake and steak and American jeans 
G
Stuart Highway's sealed at last 
                     D              G 
They can get the ore to the airport fast 

Chorus
G        C         G          D
Adelaide galleries full of art 
G                  C         D
Nothing's too dear and for a start 
     C                     G
I'll come and inspect your uranium shop 
D          G           C            D
'cause I'm Australia's Nuclear Cop 

G
They sprinkled the waste around Ayers rock 
               D                         G 
And given the (dingos/tourists) a bit of a shock 
G
It used to be a blackmans sacred site 
                   D     G
Now it glows like a neon light 


Chorus
G         C      G        D  
Landscape like a Salvador Dali 
G                C          D
We all spend our summers on Bali 
       C                      G 
I used to be a farmer till my sheep all dropped
D            G         C            D
Doug Anthony made me a Nuclear Cop 

G
Melt down, turn around, where do you hide? 
               D             G  
Can't let your children play outside 
G
Put your Geiger counter near your airtight door 
                    D       G
Watch it jiggle and hear it roar 

Chorus
G          C       G          D 
There's so much to celebrate 
G                     C       D
Living in Australia's uranium state 
      C             G 
Parliament House is Leukemia Lodge 
D          G           C            D
And standing at the door is a Nuclear Cop!
