The Lyrics


Here in Syria
I hate this fighting,
And I can’t stand the backbiting;
Is there no end to the slaughter?
It’s no way to bring up a daughter!

And the sun is burning,
While the wind is blowing.
And the blood is flowing.
Where can I go to a country
where I can be sure I’ll be free?

Maybe I’ll go to Antarctica,
Go to and fro in Antarctica;
Watch my kids grow in Antarctica.

There’s lots of snow in Antarctica!

This is a place I can bet on.

I know a boat you can get on!

Don’t need a fridge or a freezer.

Mind you don’t meet some old geezer!

I’ll run a store in Antarctica,
Right on the shore in Antarctica.
Who could want more in Antarctica?

Penguins galore in Antarctica!

I think it’s going to be nice.

Better beware of the thin ice.

At least I’ll be rid of the fighting.

What will you do for your lighting?

I want to stay in Antarctica,
Get my own way in Antarctica,
Live day to day in Antarctica.

You’ll get no pay in Antarctica!

There I’ll be free from attrition.

First you must get some permission.

I can do anything I choose.

Better go buy some new snow shoes!

Come with me all to Antarctica;
We’ll have a ball in Antarctica.
See the snow fall in Antarctica;
We’ll all walk tall in Antarctica!

Nice work. Inventive.

Clever, although the chance of finding an old geezer is close to nil unless you make it over to one of those scientists' outposts. 555

This one just leaves me cold. You have pointed out the greatest asset of Antarctica: its climate is so harsh no one can fight over it. Yet.
