Don't forget that you've got legs you won't ever have again
Don't spend your days all working don't you waste your days in bed
Do your work in the early morning, do your loving in the afternoon
Get on your feet and raise your head, put on ya socks and go to the beach

Each and every morning In old Melbourne town
There are people building houses, there are people tearin em down
Every single satdy morning mowing the nature strip
Well I'm not gonna renovate and I'm not gonna mow my lawn

The sun is fucking shining, the sky is bloody blue
Get some pepper in your trousers coz the day is fresh and new
Don't knock it till you've tried it get some sparkle in your eyes
Some dirt under your fingers garn and get some exercise!


from Bushrangers Need Bush, released December 23, 2015
