lyrics

gotta get a run on the Biggalong Band
or the Rum Tum crew will stay our hand
and that will be, you know,
the end of our fiddling, fighting, bare-back riding
all the very things that we delight in!

gotta get a wriggle on, squiggle on, the Biggalong
are breathin' down our neck, what the heck
doubly dang-a-lang, have us in the stocks in our jocks
with the grey old portlies stifling chortles at our poor misfortune

what do you do when you find they've been feeding you a line of rope?
when you discover they've been stringing you along all along?
your world unravels as you travel down on down into the doubty deep
can you be sure even your hands will pull you ashore?

how did I entice these lies?
and wrap myself in garment upon garment of them?
who are those who turn on me
after spinning all that yarn about
being good ol' bosom buddies?

down in the deep you're as lonesome and naked as a newly born
tatters of mem'ries and manners peel away from your skin
the you you're used to is floating away into the deeply blue
all you are now, is the how, that will bring you to shore

time to slip the know my friends!
we'll have to fight, or take our flight,
escape this fate of purest mis'ry
time to set their boats on fire
we'll never know unless we go
if life holds more
than this hell dredgery

gotta get a run on the Biggalong Band...
