E G#
Just layin’ with my lady on a houseboat in the sun

A C#m A B
Can’t hear the city hummin’, and I’m feelin’ good

E G#
With a belly full of oysters and some white wine on the ice,

A C#m A B
I’ve got that lay down lovin’ feeling – it’s really nice

A B E
What I call Hawkesbury River lovin’, good Aussie wine

G# A F# B
Workin’ hard at bein’ lazy, no bait on the line

A B E C#m
My kind of paradise, a river honeymoon

A Am E
Just layin’ with my lady on a houseboat in the sun

E G#
Well I know I should be out there. . .searchin’ for a job. . .

A C#m A B
I could try a pick ‘n shovel. . .but what the hell. . .

E G#
Why can’t I be born again and come back as a swan. . .

A C#m A B
Head up north for the winter. . .and back again. . .to find some

Hawkesbury River Lovin’, good Aussie wine
Workin’ hard at bein’ lazy, no bait on the line
My kind of paradise, a river honeymoon
Just layin’ with my lady on a houseboat in the sun

A Am E C#m
And I know you don’t mind how many times I say ‘I love you’,

A Am B
As long as you can stay around for more

What I call Hawkesbury River Lovin’, good Aussie wine
Workin’ hard at bein’ lazy, no bait on the line
My kind of paradise, a river honeymoon
Just layin’ with my lady on a houseboat in the sun

Layin’ with my lady on a houseboat in the sun…
