Station - To Bill"
(2rd last line should read "wish you", not "with you")
Burleigh Station , Richmond, Qld
I must admit it¡¯s not too fast,
The cowboy me on Burleigh Station
Not such a real bad occupation.
I fluked the job when old ¡®Mat¡¯ got fires
I¡¯m just the lad that they required,
Two pounds ten and tucker galore
A little room, could you wish for more.
This is the job, milk three old cows,
Feed a stallion and two big sows.
Chop plenty wood for the dear old cook
Then down to my hut and read a book.
Picture me Bill on a mowing machine
Trimin the lawn up nice and clean,
Raking the leaves from under the trees.
Chasing the shade to catch the breeze.
Then once a week we kill a steer,
There¡¯ll be something wrong when I leave here
Off for the cows at ,
Supper at six, right on the knock.
Now Bill old son, I¡¯ll say good-bye,
Its cow time now and I must fly,
So a Bright New Year I wish you all
May the cheques be big and your troubles
