'ALL THAT FANCY FOOD'


'ALL THAT FANCY FOOD'

After all that fancy food at Christmas in the past,
Turkey stuffing Xmas pud things that do not last
Full brekkies in the morning, snacks again at noon
Eating and drinking all day long until we see the moon
Now really what I fancy now festive time is gone,
Is plain food so English to peg me back to norm
Good old Egg and chips will get me back to form.

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
