In Australia "chunder" means to throw up after excessive drinking, both of the correct lyrics are mentioned in the song, which helps to explain why there are so many different variations. According to Greg Ham, the song is about Australians who are abroad and have come back home. As Bob Baker points out in email, It is actually about a bunch of guys from Australian on an Opium binge. Think about it; A den in Bombay (An Opium den), Travelling in a fried out Combie (Combie is an australian RV)on a hippie trail, head full of zombie (zombie is slang for Opium) Buying bread (another slang word for Opium or Heroin) from a man in Brussels
