lyrics

We’ll be setting the sail for Taipan
If the sun ever gets out of bed
But the liquor of light is an indigo leak
The wind is as cold as a witch’s tit
And it’s whipping the dogs into a frothing fit

We all want to know
Which way will the wind blow?

We’ll be setting the sail for Taipan
If the bandages come off soon
But a yellow has set in around Billy’s lips
And I swear that I can smell his wound

We all want to know
Which way will the wind blow?
Coz the minnows are all swimming south
Which is a most peculiar show
Which way will it blow?

In a moment we’ll cast off of this coast
Before the fisher boys haul in their nets
Before they’re throwing their fists
In repayment of debts
Winning women but losing bets
We’re all out here winning some and losing the rest

We all want to know
Which way will the wind blow?
We all want to know
Which way will it blow?
