    Smile a music question #4

    Down under by Men at Work

    Travelling in a fried-out Kombi
    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,

    What do the words in bold mean?

    Re: a music question #4

    Hi dilermando

    Travelling in a fried-out Kombi
    On a hippie trail, head full of zombie

    As a Brit, but not a teacher, I would understand "fried-out" to be equivalent to "burnt-out", as in a burnt-out engine - one liable to "die" at any moment.

    A Zombie is a soul-less body - see Answers.com:
    zombie: Definition from Answers.com
    I would read: "head full of Zombie" as meaning being in a mindless state (probably drug-induced, as in the "flower-power/hippie" days of the 1960's).

    Hope this helps
    Regards
