The Shearer

Done the sheds around the run
Gascoyna and Pilbara.

Shear ’em when they’re fat as whales
And poor as starving cows.

Travelled the stations on a shearer’s truck
Sitting on me swag.

Camped in corrugated shacks
And shore ’em for a zack.

Rung the shed
Drunk the cut out keg
Beat the cook at cards

Me luck didn’t hold
Bookies got m gold
And the publican scored the rest.

It’s back to the stand
Bog iron in hand
Bellies and dags fair flyin’.

I’ll ring this shed
Get another cheque
And see if I can’t multiply ‘im.
