The Lyrics

Though the man’s well-to-do,
He once did time.
They put him with a convict crew
That’s speaking Strine.*

Before that time,
The bloke had been married—
Now his wife’s a souse,
Because she had carried
The secret that her Sam is no louse.

Neither would tell who slew. . .
Made him do time
For crime.

’twas she who
In fact slew
Her bro., who
Said the two’d not take vows.

So Sam sat there
In jail, seven years;
Then to his house
One evening
Ventures a fellow who
Gets out of line.
