Ballad of Les Darcy


Way down in the USA
Where poor Les Darcy died
His Mother’s only joy
Australia’s bonny boy
How they longed for that night
To see Les Darcy fight
How he hit them
How he beat them
Every Saturday night

The critics ’round the door
Said they had never saw
A lad like Les before
Fight on the Stadium floor
They said he was a skiter
But he proved himself a fighter
But we lost all hope
When he got the dope
Way down in the USA
