If I Had Plenty Money - Poem by Francis Duggan

If i had plenty money i'd enjoy life says Lew
I'd go down to the T.A.B. and have big punt or two
I'd not drive trucks for Selby i'd give the job away
I'd read The Sun and Sporting Globe and sit at home all day.

If i had plenty money i'd go to Flemington
And have punt with the bookies and watch the horses run
I'd go to Moonee Valley to Caulfield and Sandown
And attend all the race meetings quite close to Melbourne Town.

If i had plenty money my time would be my own
No worries about weekend work no Glenda on the phone
We need you on sunday morning Lew for a driver we are stuck
A tower booked in the city and you must drive the truck

If i had plenty money i'd stay in bed till ten
But i must get up early i wasn't born to win
I've worked since day that i left school and never gone ahead
The more hours you spend working the sooner you'll be dead.

If i had plenty money sure as my name is Lew
I'd enjoy life and do the things that i want most to do
I'd not drive trucks for selby, I'd give the job away
I'd read The Sun and Sporting Globe and sit at home all day.
