[edit]
Snowy Jackson was a ringer from the outback settlement
How could he know we’d changed over to the dollar and the cent
It was 15 months or over since money he had spent
So he thought it’s time he headed where his elbow could be bent

Spoken
He was bent alright, he really got himself twisted

Now the pub looked real inviting as the town came into view
It had seen a lot of fighting since the days when it was new
Snowy hoped those days were over he was now a peaceful bloke
All he wanted was to drink with mates and to have a quiet smoke

Spoken
But things never turned out that way

When the barmaid said a dollar for a round of sparkling beer
He thought she was mistaken or she must be going queer
Thinking 5 bob was a dollar and her adding rather strange
He handed her the money and said “honey keep the change”

Spoken
Keep the change, this was where the situation changed

She grabbed him by the collar and said “Now come on son”
“You heard me say a dollar now I’ve got no time for your fun”

It sort of came from nowhere and it sort of cramped his style

Spoken
He was now a mangled mess

The barmaid must be crazy and the bouncer must be mad
He reckoned that the trouncing was the worst he’d ever had
He picked himself up later just to make his way back home
He said “At least that’s one place where I’m safe and I’m alone”

Spoken
Ah well, here’s the payoff

Before he trudged om homeward a notice caught his eye
What it had to say would be enough to make a ringer cry
It was written in plain English, he thought well here’s the rub
I didn’t know that I’d been inside a decimal currency pub

Now the old days are gone with the pounds and the pence
We now shout for mates with dollars and cents
But we fondly recall the old days round here
When we lined up together at the pub with no beer

From the LP “Way Out There” 1976
Barcoo Bill
