SANTA NEVER MADE IT INTO DARWIN (Bill Cate) Bill & Boyd - 1975 On Christmas Eve of seventy-four The warning sounded out For all the broadcast stations A great storm was near about The girls and boys asleep in bed Tomorrow was the day Their mums and dads all prayed The mighty storm would turn away Santa never made it into Darwin Disaster struck at dawn on Christmas Day Santa never made it into Darwin A big wind came and blew the town away Christmas morning was a nightmare As Cyclone Tracy struck It ripped apart the buildings Like an atom bomb had struck It twisted iron girders And it flattened all the trees The might of such a cyclone Must be seen to be believed Santa never made it into Darwin Disaster struck at dawn on Christmas Day Santa never made it into Darwin A big wind came and blew the town away Many boats put out to sea Very few returned Most were foundered on the rocks Or in deep seas overturned Australia was shocked and saddened As the news came through The devastated city Must be built anew That suffering and heartbreak Could happen in this way A natural disaster Could come on on Christmas Day Santa never made it into Darwin Disaster struck at dawn on Christmas Day Santa never made it into Darwin A big wind came and blew the town away Santa never made it into Darwin Disaster struck at dawn on Christmas Day Santa never made it into Darwin A big wind came and blew the town away A big wind came and blew the town away (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2005)
