about

When I turned 50 I went with the family to Sydney for the occassion. While there I saw that the Whitlams were going to be playing later at the Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. It was out of the question going back, however unbeknown to me, my wife Sabrina arranged for our kids to get us tickets, as my late birthday present.

lyrics

Around Sydney with Sabrina
(Bruce Pumpa)

I’m getting around Sydney with Sabrina
Never want something to come between her and me
She’s a sweet girl you might have seen her
We’re getting around seeing the things we must see
She can be fiery but she’s warm inside
I love her dearly I must confide

With the lights on the Bridge the night was all ours
As we made our way to the Opera House
The Whitlams put on a fabulous show
With the Sydney Symphony Orchestra playing with gusto
We made our way to the Rocks and our abode
With the stars over the water the Harbour just glowed

I’m hanging around Sydney with Sabrina
She’s tired from looking, I’m much keener
Now I’m sitting in a café with Sabrina
She has a long black, I have a cappucino
It’s a day out of the box, in love on The Rocks
Never want something to come between her and me

Walked up to Government House and went round the grounds
Watched the boats on the Harbour sailing round
Came back down Pitt St and looked at some shops
I hung around while Sab tried on some tops
Back at the Harbour watched a reggae band play
While we lunched in the sunshine and then went on our way

(Guitar solo)

I’m getting around Sydney with Sabrina
Never want something to come between her and me
We shopped at the Street Market outside our hotel
Full of Arts and Crafts and people trying to sell
Went up to the Bridge to marvel at the sights
Not too close to the edge, Sabrina’s not keen on heights

Got on a ferry down at Circular Quay
Cruised round the Harbour just feeling so free
Got off at Manly and walked on the beach
Up round the cliffs right out to the Reach
Had a beautiful lunch and a glass of Chablis
Looking over the sand and the kids in the sea

I’m hanging around Sydney with Sabrina
Looking at yachts in the Marina
Now I’m heading for home with Sabrina
Remembering the first time that I’d seen her
We had such a great time, the feeling’s just fine
Never want something to come between her and me
