Squires versus Burns

We’ll shortly see a battle
Twixt Squires and Tommy Burns
And the man that comes out on top
The championship he earns
Tho Tommy we will welcome
And shake him by the hand
We trust the title will remain
In our dear old sunny land

Hurrah for plain Bill Squires
The hero of the ring
From England to Australia
His praises we will sing
The noblest gladiator
Who tried in every fray
Three cheers for plain Bill Squires
He’s the gamest man today.
