** "Songbook" Songbook.TheGumbootSong -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: John Clarke (aka Fred Dagg), 1970s[1][2][3](approve sites)


"Kick it in the guts Trev"

G D C G
Gumboots, they are wonderful, gumboots, they are swell
C G C D
Cause they keep out the water, and they keep in the smell
G D C G
And when you're sitting round at home, you can always tell
C G D G
When one of the Trevs is taking off his gumboots
 
Chorus
G D C G
If it weren't for your gumboots, where would you be?
C G C D
You'd be in the hospital or infirmary
G D C G
Cause you would have a dose of the flu, or even pleurisy
C G D G
If you didn't have your feet in your gumboots
 
G D C G
Now there's rugby boots and racing boots and boots for drinking rum
C G C D
But the only boot I'm never without is the one that start with gum
G D C G
There's short ones and long ones and ones up to me belt
C G D G
But I'm never dressed till I've got on me gumboots
 
Chorus
 
G D C G
Whenever I sing at the opera, my gumboots are a must
C G C D
They help me hit the high notes, and do wonders to me bust
G D C G
They keep the water well away, so me voice won't get no rust
C G D G
You will not never find me without me gumboots
 
Chorus
 
G D C G
Now Rob Muldoon and Rowling, they haven't made a hit
C G C D
They're ruining the country, more than just a bit
G D C G
If they keep on the way they're going, we'll all be in the turd
C G D G
So you'd better get your feet up your gumboots
 
Chorus
