The Man From Snowy River
There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses - he was worth a thousand pound,

A Dog's Mistake

He dressed himself in cycling clothes, resplendent to be seen;
He hurried off to town and bought a shining new machine;
