Down at the new marina
The crowd swelled through the pier
Money to burn by the bright white lights
And endless golden beer

Seagulls fighting over chips
A man reveals his bronze chest
Wonder what you would make of it all
Jewel of the west

The streets are lined with peppermint trees
That gave your suburb its name
They wanted to knock down your stately home
Where you brought the band to play

Because no one believes in culture here
Just mineral conquests
Was there something in the water that made them turn blind
Jewel of the west

Grand visions in a Greyhound
'cross the Nullabor Plain
Stole away to London Town
Exotic and untamed

I'm never going to be as good as you
But neither will the rest
No one is fit to steal your crown
Jewel of the west
