There's a whisper on the prairie
A word upon the "Ghan"
A murmur in the Outback
That they're at it again!
Yep, two who should know better
And who never meant no harm
But I do believe they're at it
Up in the Old Hay Barn.
They say they're talkin' literature
Among the bales and stooks
But that's the place for pleasure
Not discussing books!
But now I begin to wonder
Because we know our Jo is Boss
And a Book arrived this morning
And it's called a "Word From Oz."
And it's full of poems by Soma
It's full of words of delight
And the whisper's a Melbourne Bluesman
At last has got it right!
