Slim Dusty - The Melbourne Cup Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • There's a bustle in the city, there's excitement in the scrubs
  • There's a drone of rowdy voices in every Aussie pub
  • For a year we've all been waiting and we've put our money up
  • And we're out to back the winner of the famous Melbourne Cup
  • There's a pause in all production for our minds are on the race
  • And it's time that all our worries are forgotton for a space
  • And the women cease their talking, turn the radio well up
  • And with whippin' spur their waiting for the starting of the Cup
  • And the T.A.B.'s are crowded and the punters rush and push
  • They've held a sweep in every pub in city and in bush
  • Then a mighty cheering follows as the barrier goes up
  • And there's a thousand jockey's spurring every race their in the cup
  • The first Tuesday of November, every year it is the same
  • Every Aussie heart is beating with excitement of the game
  • For they bet on dream or fancy or the forms they've followed up
  • From a dollar up to thousands on the famous Melbourne Cup
  • There are millions who have never even sat upon a horse
  • Whether it be yarding cattle or racing on the course
  • And it's doubtful if they'd even know the way to saddle up
  • But they take a lot of beating when they're racing in the cup
  • Now the famous race is over for another hopeful year
  • There's a lot of smiling faces and there's others shedding tears
  • There's a battler made a fortune, and a wealthy man hard-up
  • But win or lose they're waiting now for next year's Melbourne Cup
  • Oh that's right
  • There's a bustle in the city, there's excitement in the scrubs
  • There's a drone of rowdy voices in every Aussie pub
  • And the battler makes a fortune, and a wealthy man hard-up
  • But win or lose they're waiti
