Long Description:
Located to the east of Sydney City’s Central Business District, Kings Cross promises visitors a riot of colour and culture. Known locally as ‘The Cross’, it doubles up as Sydney’s red-light district, with a lengthy history in music, performance, and theatre.

Today, Kings Cross offers a host of activities and attractions, including lively bars, restaurants, clubs, and cafes. As well as offering cultural attractions during the day, the area bursts into life at night, bringing a whole other side of the city to visitors....excerpt from sydneycitytour.com.au website.

[Verse 1]
From St Kilda to Kings Cross
Is thirteen hours on a bus
I pressed my face against the glass
And watched the white lines rushing past
And all around me felt like all inside me
And my body left me and my soul went running

[Verse 2]
Have you ever seen Kings Cross
When the rain is falling soft?
I came in on the evening bus
From Oxford Street, I cut across
And if the rain don't fall too hard
Everything shines just like a postcard
Everything goes on just the same

[Bridge]
Fair-weather friends are the hungriest friends
I keep my mouth well shut, I cross their open hands

[Verse 3]
I want to see the sun go down
From St Kilda Esplanade
Where the beach needs reconstruction
Where the palm trees have it hard
I'd give you all of Sydney Harbour
All that land, and all that water
For that one sweet promenade
I'd give you all of Sydney Harbour
All that land, and all that water
For that one sweet promenade
Musician: Paul Kelly.
