Mangrove Dreaming.

MANGROVE DREAMING

I,M STUCK IN THE MUD, CLUTCHING MY PRIZE

TWO BIG MUDCRABS, MY GOD WHAT A SIZE

I CAN SEE IT NOW AS I SINK IN THE OOZE

FOR TEA, TWO MUDDIES AND A CARTON OF BOOZE.

STUCK IN THE MANGROVES IS NOT MUCH OF A JOKE

THE MOZZIES AND SANDFLIES SURE PICK ON A BLOKE

LOST ONE OF MY BOOTS, SUNK UP TO MY KNEES

AMIDST THE TANGLE OF ROOTS OF THESE BLOODY TREES

IF I CAN GET OUT, I KNOW THAT I MIGHT

JUST GET OUT OF THIS PLACE BY THE END OF THE NIGHT

BUT WITH A CRAB IN EACH HAND, ITS AWKWARD YOU SEE

JUST TO REACH UP AND GRAB A BRANCH OF A TREE

AND I,M DAMNED IF I ,M GONNA LET THE BUGGERS GO FREE

I,M STUCK IN THE MUD,CLUTCHING MY PRIZE

AND THE BLOODY MUD NOW IS UP TO MY EYES.

THE WORM HAS TURNED, THAT MUCH IS CLEAR

BUT THEY CAN BLOODY WELL GO AND GET THEIR OWN BEER!
