lyrics

Ode to Sharon – a curvy aravan

1. Getting away for a couple a days
With Sharon – the orange Baroness
A portable home, ready to go
Anywhere we please – OH Yes!

2. An Australian Dame, she's made a name
For bedding musicians of notable fame
Dan & Paul Kelly - to name a few
Sharon could tell a secret or two!

Oh…. Sharon!
You're not just a curvy van
Oh schweeet Sharon
I'm your biggest fan!

3. From driveways to highways, she's sure been around
She's cute & curvy & done me proud
Park her by a forest, or under a tree
Or roll her down all the way to the sea

4. It's magic at night under stars and moon
Safe in Sharon - Just me and my darlin'
With Thelma Louise
Toasting tipple & shootin' the breeze

5. Taking shelter in our house on wheels
you can paint, relax or cook a meal
whatever the weather, redemption or doom
Sharon protects me like a cucoon

OH…. Sharon!
For you I swoon
Oh schweeet Sharon
You're my little cocoon
