Bullocky-O

 

I draw for Smeckle’s Mill, bullocky-o, bullocky-o.
And there’s many a log I drew, bullocky-o.
I draw cedar, beech and pine, and I never get on the wine,
I’m the king of bullock drivers, don’t you know,
Bullocky-o,
The king of bullock drivers, don’t you know,
Bullocky-o.

There’s Guinea and Wapples too, bullocky-o, bullocky-o,
And it’s many a log they drew, bullocky-o
I can tell you it’s no slander,
When I say I raise their gander,
When they hear the crack of my whip, Bullocky-o, bullocky-o.

There’s Anderson and Cameron too, bullocky-o, bullocky-o.
And it’s many the log they drew, bullocky-o
I can give them a hundred feet,
Act square and never cheat.
I’m the king of bullock drivers, don’t you know,
Bullocky-o. bullocky-o.

There’s Marshall too, he brags, bullocky-o, bullocky-o,
With his fourteen raw-boned stags, bullocky-o
