Hi Scarpi.
Just to confirm is this Koala Cafe recorded on the album "Colour of Dreams"?

THE KOALA KAFE
©Eric Bogle January 2000

1. Down at the Kaola Kafe
They're not servin' milk-shakes any more.
The owners have gone and the shutters are drawn.
There's a faded note pinned to the door
That says, "We ran out of credit and cash.
We ran out of toil sweat and tears.
Then we ran out of dreams, so now it seems
All that's left is to run out of here."

CHORUS: The whole town is fadin', fadin' away
Since the music stopped playin' down at the Koala Kafe.

2. Outside the Koala Cafe
There's a big red and white "for sale" sign,
But nobody's buyin', for this town is dyin'.
It's only a matter of time.
The banks moved away months ago
When their profits started to fall,
And when the next term rolls round, the school's closin' down.
Without kids there's no future at all.

3. Inside the Koala Kafe,
It's silent empty and dim.
Dust lies thick on the shelves, the juke box as well.
No more Elvis, Madonna or Slim.
No songs driftin' along Main Street
On those long hot still summer nights,
No hoons drivin' about ,no kids just hangin' out.
Last to leave please turn out the lights.

No problem Skarpi, hope when you sing it the people of Iceland enjoy your version.
I am a particular fan of Eric Bogle and love his songs and his and John Monroe's singing. Koala Cafe is not one I have heard more than once, but you have raised my interest again, thanks.
I have seen Eric and John live and they are good. Managed to have a good talk to Eric. I believe that Eric's tours out of Australia are over, but worth a visit to Australia see them. Can you take a short cut over the Pole or is it even further from there as it is for me from Yorkshire. Just come back, myself and unfortunately they were not appearing near enough to see them.
