Slim Dusty - Pay Day At The Pub Lyrics

  • Now the weary week has ended, it's pay day on the job
  • Let's go down to the local and mingle with the mob
  • You'll meet the dinkum Aussies, rough and ready as they are
  • With hard faces brown as leather, lined up around the bar
  • Someone is sure to greet you, you chaps I'm glad to see
  • Come on you pair of somethings, and have a drink with me
  • While the barmaid juggles glasses and the boss works with a will
  • For he loves to hear the rattle of the silver in the till
  • Now the rousabout is busy, he hasn't time to think
  • And I'm sure he'd never hear you if you ask him for a drink
  • Oh the barrels that are heavy will be light ones very soon
  • When the brumbies come to water on a pay day afternoon
  • Now the world is such a great place, everyone is doing well
  • And strange it is to listen to the stories that they tell
  • Some are ridin' buckin' brumbies, some are up north in the cane
  • Some are growling at the weather and are wishing it would rain
  • And there's old Jimmy Wooter in the corner by himself
  • Telling stories to the bottles that are standing on the shelf
  • Oh he once was high and mighty though forlorn he's looking now
  • In a hat that came from nowhere and a torn old Jackie Howe
  • Now the clock is moving onwards, the lightweights have their fill
  • But those with more horse power are staying with it still
  • Some have already had it and are layed out in a swoon
  • They'll be grumpy when they wake up on a pay day afternoon
  • Hear the hen-pecked hubbies saying what will become of me
  • For I told my little woman that I'd hurry home to tea
  • She's going to play old Harry and whale like one bereft
  • When she digs into my pockets and she finds there's little left
  • But if he uses a bit of blarney she'll forgive
