Everybody can't be heroes but some can still try
To make their lives a little different
Before the time it goes by

Now I live up around the north shore
In a room with no view
Every morning on that ferry, my view is filled with you

I'm gonna let my heart take me away
I'm gonna jump a little further every day
I'm gonna let my heart take me away
I'm the long jumping jeweller of Lavender Bay

She's there every single morning
With about a hundred more
They watch as I come a runnin', they all know the score

I always like to be the last one
So I jump as she pulls away
The gap gets a little bit wider the longer I delay

I'm gonna let my heart take me away
I'm gonna jump a little further every day
I'm gonna let my heart take me away
I'm the long jumping jeweller of Lavender Bay

I handle gemstones in the city
In a little lane off Australia square
I got one picked out for you that looks so pretty
But I got to make you notice that I'm there

Well, I started to make the papers
And people began to bet
Would I end up with the lady
Or would I just end up getting wet?

Now I'm not gonna give you the answer
In, oh, so many words
But swimming in Sydney Harbor
You know is strictly for the birds
Tweet, tweet, for the birds

I'm gonna let my heart take me away
I'm gonna jump a little further every day
I'm gonna let my heart take me away
'Cause I'm the long jumping jeweller of Lavender Bay

I'm the long jumping jeweller of Lavender Bay
Long jump, long jumping jeweller
I live in Lavender Bay, hear what I say
I'm the long jumping jeweller of Lavender Bay

Long jumping jeweller, long jumping jeweller
I live in Lavender Bay, long jumping jeweller
