Daly River Oh

Now I saw a Niger sitting up an old gum tree
The crows had picked his eyes out and he couldn’t see
Never oh never a word said he
For he was dead as dead could be
He was just about ripe
You could smell him for a mile
And his bum was sticking out
Like a horse with the piles
Then Draggle threw him a gibber
And hit him in the guts
The Niger went woof
And we all went bush
Down on the Daly River O
