It's Shitbox time, there's no need to be afraid.

At Shitbox time, we let in light and banish shade

And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of Joy

Throw your arms around the world at shitbox time.

But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones.

At shitbox time... it's hard but when you're having fun...

There's a world outside your window and it's a world of tread and gears

Where the only water flowing Is when piss eagles steal your beers

Where the shitbox bells that are ringing are the clanging chimes of Doom

Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you.

And there won't be snow in mildura this shitbox time.

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life.


Where nothing ever grows No rain or rivers flow

Do they know it's shitbox time at all?


Here's to you...

Raise a glass for everyone

Here's to them...

Underneath that burning sun

Do they know it's shitbox time at all?

spread the word

spread the word

spread the word,

Let them know it's shitbox time again.
