Bush Tucker

Where the desert greets a river,

Drought ends can you figure,

How the new plants can thrive,

Where nothing once was alive,

It’s a short time I know,

The Pig Face has a glow,

I am a bush tucker man today,

Reaping in that hay,

While the all around its clear,

Rain oh rain has been here,

Let’s enjoy the Darling River,

Where it meets the Murray I shiver,

This land of ours is old,

Bush food stands out so bold,

Teach me about a land of plenty,

Without it my life is empty.
