Stewie Mudcat Australia/NZ Songbook (1001* d) RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia 12 Nov 20


Poor dad, he got five years in jail as everybody knows
And now he lives in Maitland jail, broad arrows on his clothes
He branded old Brown's cleanskins. and he never left a tail
So I'll relate the family's fate since dad got put in jail

So stir the wallaby stew, make soup of the kangaroo's tail
I tell you things are pretty crook since dad got put in jail

Our sheep all died a month ago, they all got flaming fluke,
Our cow was boozed last Christmas by my big brother, Luke
I sold the buggy on me own - the place is up for sale
That won't be all that's up the spout when dad gets out of jail

Our Bess got shook upon some bloke, he's gone, we don't know where
He used to act around the place, but he ain't acted square
And mother's got a shearer cove forever on her tail
The family will have grown a bit when dad gets out of jail

They let him out before his time to give us a surprise
He looked around at all of us, and gently blessed our eyes
He shook hands with the shearer cove, and said that things looked stale
Then he left him here to shepherd us, and headed back to jail
