I've heard a song "Yindy" by "Fiddler's Green". Here's the first couplet and a refrain from it:

My mother she took me to the preacher.
She told me that he will be my teacher.
My father he thought that I was lazy.
He drank and drank till he went crazy.
My sister she showed me all her loving.
And I? I just gave her nothing.
My brother was like a little donky.
His face was just like from a monkey.

Yindy let me go, take me back to the streets I know.
Yindy let me go, take me back to the flow.
Yindy let me go, take me back to the streets I know.
Yindy let me go, take me back to the flow.

I can't understand neither google, what is Yindy and what does it mean here. Need an explanation.

  • I was't asking for interpretation. I just didn't know, what is Yindy. Now I know, it's a name – Waldemar Jul 13 '16 at 15:00

Probably it somehow correlates with the meaning of the name itself. In Australian, the name Yindi means - the sun.The name Yindi originated as an Australian name. The name Yindi is most often used as a girl name or female name. [http://www.meaning-of-names.com/australian-names/yindi.asp#ixzz4EHc0sAC0] Maybe it is used as a metaphor. All the relationship with the relatives seem to be dull, the sun, the change may help to enjoy the life.

    Thanks for your answer and Rathony's comment. I could not google this is a name because it's written as "YindY" instead of "Yindi". Now I've got it. – Waldemar Jul 13 '16 at 10:30
