By: Peter Cape, 1958[1]


G C G
I got a new brown sports coat
G C D
I got a new pair of grey strides
G C G
I got a real kiwi haircut
D D G
Bit off the top, short back and sides
 
G C G
Soon as I've tied up the guri
G C D
Soon as I've swept out the yard
G C G
Soon as I've hosed down me gumboots
D D G
I'll be living it high and living it hard
 
G C G
I'm gonna climb onto me tractor
G C D
Gonna belt it out of the gate
G C G
There's a hop on down at the woolshed
D D G
And it starts sharp round half past eight
 
G C G
Look at the sheilas cutting the supper
G C D
Look at the kids sliding round the floor
G C G
Look at the great big crowd of jokers
D D G
Standing round the far end door
 
G C G
I had a schottische with the tart from the butchers
G C D
Had a waltz with the constable's wife
G C G
I had a beer from the keg on the cream truck
D D G
The cop had one too, you can bet your life
 
G C G
They've got the teacher to belt the pianner
G C D
They've got Joe from the store on the drums
G C G
We're as slick as the 'Orange' in Auckland
D D G
For whooping things up and making them hum
 
G C G
Oh it's great being out with the jokers
G C D
When the jokers are happy and bright
G C G
Oh it's fun giving cheek to the sheilas
D D G
Down the hall on Saturday night
