the high impact ‘Century Girl’ – an epic visual and lyrical montage of war and peace over the past 100 years.
I'm gonna have to introduce myself
I've got no record company, I produce myself
I've been the drummer and I played the bass
Now I'm up the front with my pretty little face
Kept it together through the leaner years
I sang Stormy Weather through the meaner years
I've been the sucker of the century
Now I'm the fucker I was meant to be

Born at the turn of the century
I landed on the beaches of Gallipoli
I stood tall while Wall Street crashed
But I never ever had a lot of cash
Fought in the trenches of the second war
I landed with MacArthur at Corregidor
My arse got burned when Saigon fell
Re-education was another kind of hell

Century girl I'm checking out
Is there much left for us to talk about?
I'll call back in from planet Earth
The self same child I was upon my birth

And I've been a sailor of the seven seas
I was a hippy in the seventies
I shot the sheriff and I fought the law
I've been the hooker to the whore you know
And I've been a Catholic and I been Zen
I've been the Buddhist since Christ knows when
I've been to Babylon, I've been to Rome
Been travelling but now I'm home

Century girl I'm checking out
Is there much left for us to talk about?
I'll call back in from planet Earth
The self same child I was upon my birth

I've seen a bucket load of shit go down
I've been the president, I've been the clown
I've seen a bucket of futility
Don't need to demonstrate virility
Still I ain't bitter and I ain't green
And I'm feeling fitter than I've ever been
I've been the sucker of the century
Now I'm the fucker I was meant to be
