Danny Draper (14 July 1963 / Kiama, New South Wales, Australia)
Alpha males and safety.
Are you deaf mate? Why?
Because there's a sign there,
Can't you read?
Don't worry! It's my job!
Everyone that comes along here
For whatever reason
Good reasons, safety for one!
Has to follow the rules.
It's the law that's why!
Joking aren't you, you'll be ok?
'K, you a superhero or what?
Look mate, gotta go!
Man some people are from a diff'rent planet!
Now here's another one,
Oi! What are you doing? Get out of there!
Please can these people just listen?
Quittin' time, can't come soon enough,
Right see ya mate, yeah! Drive safe!
See you to t'morrow!
Thursday, yeah that's right!
Usually works Wednesday, swapped.
Vowed never to work weekends,
Weekdays long enough... For sure!
'X'llent money, but too much tax.
You're better off relaxing, sleeping in
Zzzzzzzs til at least 9. See ya.
