Falling from the sky

Look at the sunset

Takes my mind


To my homeland

Far away

It's the story

It's the story

Runnin' in my mind

It's so clear

It's so clear

Oh, my

Oh, my

Hey, people

Can you dig what I say?

Sunset, baby

The Kelly Gang had been

holding up banks

for as long as, well, for as

long as there'd been banks.

Historically, we were

the World's First Biker Gang.

What really set us apart

from all the other outlaws

was our philosophy.

We always gave everything

we stole to the poor.

My uncle Dan had been the

most notorious aboriginal outlaw

of all time,

until he retired to run the family pub.

My brother job was

the Gang's tax expert,

and the rest of the Gang

worked full-time

in the manufacture

and consumption of beer.

Come on, Ned.

You're be late for work.

Wild thing

You make my heart sing...


Times has changed, all right.

The entire bank-robbing division

of the once world-famous Kelly Gang

had been reduced to just one man...



Wild thing

You make my heart sing, yeah...

We lived in this wild pub.

It was so old that no one was sure

if it was actually built

or just somehow

grew out of the ground.

Over the years, it has become home

to every kind of wildlife

you can imagine.

Apart from my dog,

my bike was my best mate.

I personally built it

from the wheels up

out of scrap metal.

Sure, it had some

minor structural problems.

It wasn't exactly mechanically perfect,

but everyone respected it.

Especially Joe.

Morning, Dan.

Morning, Ned.

It is refueled.

Thanks, Joe.

You still haven't fixed

that leaking pump.

Have now.


See yourself.

Our pub was on the shore

of a national park,

hundreds of miles from anywhere.

I reckon it was as close to paradise

as you can get.

Riding to work that day,

nothing seemed different

from any other day.

At least that's what

I thought at the time.

Good morning.

I'd like to make a withdrawal.

It's a .44.

Check out the dickhead

talking to a machine.

That's no dickhead.

That's Ned Kelly.

Oh, yeah!

I don't think so.

Ouch. Computer malfunction.


This is the Kelly Gang...

And I'd like to make a deposit.


Yeah. Deposit this money

amongst the bank accounts of any

people who can't repay their loans.

And I want receipts,

and I want 'em now.

Oui. Oui.

I will get all the staff onto it.

All officers, take your positions.

It was then I heard something

you rarely hear in the

middle of a bank robbery...


"If music be the food of love,

play on. Give me excess of it."

"If music be the food of love..."

And who are you?

Robin Banks.

I was earlier. Now I'm depositin'.

This is my lunch break.

I love american accents.

Excuse me.

I like the way you talk.

In fact, I like everything

about America.

What you reading?


I hate flies.

Mr. Kelly, all the people's receipts.

Thanks, mate.

This time he's trapped.


maybe I'll see you later.

I doubt it, cowboy.

Bye, Ned.

Wait for it.

What's the matter, boys?

Robbin' people with a six-gun

I fought the law and the law won

I fought the law and the law won

I needed money 'cause

I had none

I fought the law, and the

Law won

I fought the law

And the law won

I left my baby, and I feel so bad

I guess my race is run

She's the best girl that I ever had

I fought the law, and the law won

I fought the law, and the--
