Hitched in Manly

Wayne Gagnon - Kangaroos

“Hitched in Manly”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Sunday and Faith)

A Sheila and Bloke…
…met in the States.
Each is a spunk…
…and a corker as mates!

That Sheila and Bloke…
…got hitched down in Manly.
Bend an elbow for love…
…and the start of a family.

Then came ankle biters…
…like lollies, so sweet
This mob from Down Under…
…now seems quite complete.

Aussie Glossary:

Ankle biters – kids, children
Bend an elbow – drink, toast
Bloke – man
Corker – a really good thing
Down Under – Australia and New Zealand
Hitched – married
Lollies – candy
Manly – suburb of Sidney
Mates – friends
Mob – family
Sheila – woman
Spunk – good looking person
