2.So drink your drinks and drink 'em slow
  Cause soon you'll all be gone
  As part of a team of a great exploring dream
  Let's hope your leaders will know where to go

3.Oh Mr Burke do I really have to go?
  You see I've got this awful feeling in my bones
  I'm afraid that I won't see my home again
  And I dreamt the dingoes were tearing off my clothes

4.I'll give this much to Burke, he was a man of nerve
  But he couldn't pick a bushman from a cove
  To give spell binder Wright a job just on sight
  Was asking for trouble from the word go

5.So it's away, away we go
  Away up north out in the great unknown
  Well whose idea was it to walk across the country
  I say leave the bloody country to the crows

6.After four months of toil and trouble
  From the gulf to the Cooper we return
  Only to find they'd left nine hours before
  And not a soul to help us in our bind

7.Oh Mr Burke where did all the blackfella's go?
  Mr Burke, how we gonna make it on our own?
  I'd give everything on this day to be four hundred miles away
  With a cold beer sloshing in my mouth
