lyrics

Separation St
Nothing lasts forever
Separation St
Brings us together
Separation St we got the world at our feet

Separation St
The pain the pleasure
Separation St
Not too dumb nor clever
Separation St and all the people you meet

Ain't no Champs Elysees ain’t no Reeperbahn
Just a little dirt track carved out through someone's farm
Ain't no royal boulevard sweeping around a bend
And who knows where Arthurton Rd begins and ends?

Separation St
Nothing lasts forever
Separation St
Brings us together
Separation St we got the world at our feet

We're going down to the clay below
There's a cemetery next door oh yeah we know
We're going down to a deep dark hole
Tell the wife and the kids oh I love them so I love them so

Hakatere onto Oamaru
Oamaru onto Wakanui that leads us into the park
Ain't we lucky that we got a quarry
And a quarry onto a tip that leads us into a park?
All Nations meet on Separation St

And on a sunny afternoon
We could go whistlin' a tune
Or maybe head down to the creek
Or maybe stay home and sleep
But there's one place we need to go
The plaza the plaza the plaza the plaza

Separation St
Nothing lasts forever
Separation St
Brings us together
Separation St we got the world at our feet
Separation Street
