I met a girl from Adelaide Natasha was her name She sang a song with me on stage On a hot, sunny, Christmas Day. A Donkey drove ol Santa in Who laughed at our huge green glasses Golden, brown eyed, she stole my heart and then left with her grand mother.
Now in Brisbane I do live So close and yet so far I have a little beauty of my own I named her, Annie Rose Her hair is gold and her eyes are brown and her smile is sweet and bright And when we play with hermit crabs Natasha comes to light
And I sit remembering How time does fly each day How easy love is found, Lost and found again In the face, of my beloved child
The little girl , who ran away In her dress of white Today, she sits before me. Annie Rose is my delight. She was born in Brisbane, Not far and not so near from, The one I lost in Bali, Who lives in Adelaide. A Lady's Life
