A Fair Dinkum Brew
Old Smiley was throwing a party
celebrating his latest home brew.
As his friends were all fair dinkum Aussies
we sure were a real thirsty crew
When we all gathered at his old humpy
old Smiley said " I'm telling you.
You fellas just ain't tasted nuthin
till you take a good swig a me brew.
After I downed a couple of schooners
it seemed that old Smiley was right.
Cos the damm stuff had hardly hit bottom
before I was out like a light.
When I comes too an hour or so later
boy did I get bleeding surprise.
As I gazed at the scene there before me
I couldn't believe me own eyes
There was blokes hoppin hell west and crooked
as each other they tried hard to pass.
There was no need for any refreshments
cause the blighters were all eatin grass.
I sees me old mate Curley and calls him
but he snarled " ain't you got no sense ".
You know that me blinking names Skippy
and he then cleared a six foot high bloody fence.
"Stone the crows mate" I says to old Smiley
"there's something I need to ask you"?
"I feel like I'm a jumping all over
what the hell did you put in that brew".
Old Smiley stood there looking sheepish
as he hung down his shaggy old head.
and I thought that Id gone in the horrors
when he looked up at me and he said.
"Well bein a bloke wot hates waste mate
I gets this humdinger idea.
They was putting the roo in the stew Blue
so I puts extra " Hops " in me beer.

The purpose in life is to have fun.
