Fire Bucket

Boys’ll all be down there.
Lining up to go,
done the prestart,
rehashed the play,
footy, races come what may.

Cadel Evans out in front,
toast me back and make a start.
Make it happen, make it pay.
On and on a long wet day

Stoked the bucket,
cracked a can.
Freezin’ day,
best we can.

Mud and slush across the yard.
Shut ‘er down,
head on home.
