Re: You Better Run, You Better Take Cover - Cuz Fernando's Coming To The Land Down Under!

In case you all can't figure out where the title comes from, its from the Men At Work song:

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said,

Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Buying bread from a man in brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, do you speak-a my language?
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Lying in a den in bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?
And he said,

Oh! do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Okay, I've finally lost it.

Re: You Better Run, You Better Take Cover - Cuz Fernando's Coming To The Land Down Under!

Glad you like it.

Oh Val. I feel so old. Its an 80s band.

I have no idea where to hear music online but I know on amazon it lets you hear about 15 seconds of the song.

Here's the link for Men at Work, Super Hits, scroll down to Listen To Samples, look for the song Down Under. You can hear it in Windows or Real Player.

Thanks for the link. I didn't know that song, but sounds nice You are not old, don't worry

The main draw will be very soon, later tonight. I hope Fernando will be lucky for once, hope he won't be in Roger's draw. I hope Fernando and Carlos will be in the same draw, I won't need to stay up all the nights !! Many wishes I'll dream of a good draw

Re: You Better Run, You Better Take Cover - Cuz Fernando's Coming To The Land Down Under!

Draw is out!

Fernando got a QUALIFIER in the first round.

Second round is the winner of Clement/Matheiu. Difficult, but doable.

I had the same reaction when I read Val's post! Didn't know whether to or . It doesn't seem that long ago....
The thread title is sure to bring Fernando good luck for Oz-he already got a decent (that is not too sucky) of a draw.

Re: You Better Run, You Better Take Cover - Cuz Fernando's Coming To The Land Down Under!

Monfils third round ... that guy could be dangerous ...

and we could have a re-match between Gonzo and Coria that would be a great match

I see QF as a very realistic ... and he could play against Lleyton ... if they have to face each other that would be a really hard match for me But I will always support Gonzo first

Re: You Better Run, You Better Take Cover - Cuz Fernando's Coming To The Land Down Under!

I'm really nervous about Fernando's condition! Let's hope he's ok for the AO!
I want him to feel good and then start thinking about his rivals for the AO!
Thankfully he got a Qualifier as well as Nico!

Gaudio º Gonzalez, F º Massu º Murray º Thiem º Nalbandian º Nishikori º Wawrinka
