The Fat Battlers Railway

Written By: Martin Wilson


The Fat Battlers Railway

1)Calling lots of fat battlers (7)

2)Ever tried to lose weight (6)

3)Each attempt being a downer (7)

4)But let's not get irate (6)

5)You'll get the good figure (6)

6)For which you've been praying (6)

7)Helping some folks to lay (6)

8)The Hobart to Broome Railway (7)


(Chorus)
1)On the fat battlers railway (7)

2)We'll lose lots of (that) weight (5/6)

3)Working 16 hour days (6)

4)If we don't die anyway (7)

5)We'll get wasted away (6)

6)And if we make it to Broome (7)

7)Our money's returned,so they say (8)

1)Now these railway investors (7)

2)Are a great bunch of fellas (7)

3)They're doing us great favours (7)

4)By making a great offer (7)

5)Each night there's free water (7)

6)And only for a dollar (7)

7)Rice and cabbage in batter (7)

8)The food could n't be better (7)

1)It might sound a bit brutal (7)

2)It might sound a bit cruel (6)

3)But you'll see the results (6)

4)If you can follow it through (7)

5)And you know that's what matters (7)

6)So don't spend your dollars (6)

7)On those schemes you can't follow (7)

8)They're not worth the trouble (6)

Wrong Job

Written By: Martin Wilson

Wrong Job

1)The alarm goes in the morning (8)

2)Same old day ahead,so boring (8)

3)Would like to do some more sleeping (8)

4)Would like to do some more dreaming (8)

1)You might be getting a pay packet (9)

2)But you feel you're in a strait-jacket (9)

3)It's a strait-jacket you can end in (8)

4)With no strong inner direction (8)

(Chorus?)
1)Lots of square pegs in (lots of) round holes (7/9)

2)Lots of round pegs in (lots of) square holes (7/9)

3)All those voices from the outside (8)

4)On how people must do life right (8) On how we all must do life right (8)

5)We can end up in work we don't like (9)

1)On the bus reading the newspaper (9)

2)Avoiding the same old faces (8)

3)He's in the job to make money (8)

4)She's in the job for the safety (8)

1)Starting work,the same old routine (8)

2)Waiting for a break,for morning tea (9)

3)He's here because he's supposed to be (9)

4)She's here because it's all too easy (9)

1)Going in the wrong direction (8)

2)Don't like my own contribution (8)

3)Time for a bit of reflection (8)

4)To discover a solution (8)

The Meeting

Written By: Martin Wilson

The Meeting

1)Hell,what are you doing here? (7)

2)Now I want to disappear (7)

3)But I could have hidden away (8)

4)With bitter feelings holding sway (8) Where bitter feelings dominate (8)

5)Hoping we'd never meet again, (8)

6)Now you're here at this gathering. (8)

(Chorus?)
1)Do we hang on the crosses (7)

2)Of our own biographies (histories)? (7/6)

3)Or do we cut our losses? (7)

4)Becoming lovers again,not enemies. (11)

1)It could have been easier, (8)

2)If we had passed each other, (7)

3)On a noisy crowded street, (7)

4)Forever never to meet, (7)

5)Now fate's thrown us together (7)

6)So where do we go from here (7)

1)Stupidly there was rivalry (8)

2)Such silly bitter jealousy (8)

3)But now I clearly recognize (8)

4)That there's never been a prize (8)

5)For winning a lover's fight (7)

6)Ending in an angry goodbye (8)
