Without doubt the best part of the show. After sitting through 11 years of John Howard (from when I was 8 to age 19) this satirical parody was very refreshing. Terry Serio does John Howard here, as well as Bob Hawke elsewhere in the musical. I will upload the rest of the show soon
Hang on a tic, just let me talk
'Cos you can tell by the way I use my walk
I'm just a bloke, a normal bloke, and nothing more
I've got my home, I've got my health
I've got my lovely wife and kids,
I've got no tickets on myself
I'm just a bloke, an Aussie bloke, to the core.
So you know that I'd be grateful to the nation at large
If you thought it was appropriate to put me in charge
Of the Mateship - anchors away
We've decided you're invited to stay
On the Mateship - welcome aboard
We could find a better kind of accord, uh-huh-huh.
Well I can jibe, and I can tack
So let the skipper take the clipper to Gallipoli and back
I'll be a bloke, an Aussie bloke, with Digger pride
We wouldn't mix with other crews
We won't consult with any cult promoting multiple views
We'll just be blokes. Dinkum blokes. Bona fide.
And I'd look to the community defending the land
If you took the opportunity to give me command
Of the Mateship - hoisting the sail
Never throw a baby over the rail (LOL)
On the Mateship - flying the flag
You'll be clamouring to carry a swag, uh-huh-huh.
Mates would die for a mate
Mates are worth their weight in gold
Mates can rely on a mate
So I'm told...
Now I'm a man, I'm not a boy
When they say Aussie Aussie Aussie I say Oy oy oy!
Like any bloke, a rugged bloke, pretty tough
It's catching on, it's all the rage
Why even now I look around and see no women on the stage
Only blokes - Aussie blokes
(Hey, I'm a Kiwi!)
You could dwell upon tomorrow and the sorrow you feel
Or set a course for yesterday and give me the wheel
Of the Mateship - rounding the boy
No political correctness ahoy
On the Mateship - anchors aweigh
We'll decide if you're invited to stay
On the Mateship.
