She'll wash a prospect quick and well,
And deftly use the ladle;
The weight of gold at sight she'll tell,
And work with tub and cradle.

An Australian Song

And join us in a song,

For we can hold our own, we can,
In fight or friendly fray,
And conquer in the battle van
As on the fields at play.

[Hata Bildir]
