“Errol” released by Australian Crawl

Convict state
It just won’t rate
He want to get higher
Apple isle, the inbred smile
He’s gonna get by’a
His mother’s hand
He could not stand
He left for the islands
To fish and hunt
To take a punt
The New Guinea highlands

Oh Errol I would give
Everything, just to be like him

He had to go
The Sirocco
He’s sailin’ the high seas
Hollywood, Captain Blood
He’s billing the nazi’s
Took a rebel stand
With the contraband
Coast of Mexico
He want to pounce
Like an animal
To girls he just can’t say no

Oh Errol I would give
Everything, just to be like him

He had them all
Screamin’ for more
He play the wild scene
Ah scandalize, no comprise
He’s down on his knees
Swashbuckling
He was the king
The toast of tinsel town
They build him up
They took it all
And they just cut him down

Oh Errol I would give
Everything, just to be like him

  1. ‘Errol’ was released in July 1981 and was a track on the Sirocco album, which reached Number One on the Album Charts. The song is a cleverly written lyrical biography of film star, Errol Flynn, which depicts his life from birth in Tasmania (convict state) to his starring roles, and his wild days in Hollywood.
