Jersey Flegg 02:22
In the pool they stare at me You gotta stretch it out post-game you see These young ones making me their enemy Cause they don't wanna end up down like me They say I've done the best I was gonna do I got some games behind me I know it's true I'm off the field by four in the afternoon Watch the boys kick home from the dressing room Had a bit of time before When it wasn't me in the pre-game show When the five-eighth saw me make the play Straight down the line to seal the day But the Jersey Flegg starts at two today The ref's a peanut I think he heard me say I'll catch the coaches eye if it kills me hey But the same thing happened yesterday

They aren't always grubbin at me though After a couple in town after the show They'll drop by my empty table Ain't empty cause it's littered with empties now They'll buy rounds and gather round For a laugh I can tell But they're buying and I'm flying back They wanna know bout '93 When everything looked so good for me I'd pull up to the ground in my LTD Wood-grain on the dash and leather seats They wanna know bout '93 When everything looked so good for me I'd rock up to the game with a blonde on my arm And leave with another Bought one house for me old man And one for me mother That's where I live now Back with her the old sow

Yeah, I'm going back I can smell the turf On my old man's boots When he kicks them off The scent of my youth Not on my clean floor! My Ma would yell But he'd grin at me Get him a cold VB Sit up on his knee The game on TV I'd be polishing those boots til they shone He was a mean bastard when a mood took on But in those good moments I wanted to be like him And play Yeah, it's under 15s And I'm on the wing With him meters away Just over the line Loosing his shit as always You don't want it bad enough! He shouts With his squinty eyes From that amber breaky There's some girls havin A good old laugh about me It's the only time I see him now On Saturday mornings at the oval Since Ma kicked him outta home because of the drink And he softens a bit after the game Puts a tenner in my hand Says he knows I can play Then my mates call me over And he's gone with a nod And his paper bag Yeah I'm in the change rooms Underneath a stadium Calling my name Or baying for blood Time to give them a game Get out here and whip these bastards round! When we come up the ramp To the roaring mass I'll sometimes look up And think I see my Dad Now I know I'm doing this 'cause of him It's what he wanted from me Not to turn to the drink But we'll see how that goes Won't we? Yes we will

Ann-Maree 02:52
You're never going alone again Ann-Maree And now that I've found you You're never going alone again Saw you at a thing for children's TV The club sent me cause I had choof in my pee Caught your big green eyes, I couldn't believe Someone so pretty staring back to me Your baby voice joyous, me here mushroom ear But I can tell you want me Now you're not going alone again Ann-Maree And now that I've found you You're never going alone again Winnie Cup day came I sent a car to see Here's the best tickets Could you get ready High up in the stands In the VIP I saw you like an angel My heart skipped a beat The cheer girls had given some flowers to me White flowers in ribbons next to the trophy I told the water boy to bring them to you I winked when he whispered, whispered from who I mean it when I say I want you for good These others mean nothing Now that I found you up there Ann-Maree And now that I've found you You're never going alone again Ann-Maree At the function center out by the sea Ribbons in the colour of the team's jersey I realised I already popped your friend Stacey Now I knew it straight There's no ranger for me You got me missing training Got the coach on me But I'm still making tries Cause I know you can see You got me spinning girl Baby, can't you see It's only been a month But I'm on my knee Say yes Ann-Maree Let's go it together from now Ann-Maree And now that I've found you You'll never go it alone again Ann-Maree

There ain't nothing to work out Cause nothing happened 'Cept seeing her little red mouth Locked to another man's I spose I just waste my time Went down to the studio To pick her up A booking at Maricio's Guess a pupeteer's trained to have his hands up things Now her skirt You coulda had Whispering Jack Playing your wedding day I spose I just waste my time You held me like no one had Made me think I was loved for more than my success Guess it's back to chasing thrills In the Cross again Waste my time Waste my time The gods of cheating get me back Waste my time They know I've done my share of that But it's different cause I wasn't mucking round with you Like you were

Course I still think of her She's the first thing plain in my mind As the mist clears from the night before And she whispers so close I can feel: Baby come back to me please She calls to me in hours of tarnish When I can't fight it off anymore When I don't have the fire to be hateful When I forget this heart that she tore Course I still ache for her But it seems like the right thing to do When you're back playing down in reserves And everything blows yes it's true Baby it wouldn't with you

Rabbits 02:46
I was in a bar then I was out the front People don't remember a face Ofcourse, when it's all bloated from the sauce I don't blame them in the first place And who comes pushing through the evening glow The last person I want to see Ray Warren jogging those big lungs sucking The cool air of winter Sydney I turned and buried my face into my hood Didn't have to try hard to look Like a worthless drunk But he sits down and says: When you were younger you had everything We envied your girl and your game But when it fell to bits and things went to the shit We stood by you all the same And now you're wasting yourself away Lost the last thing you'd held on to That was dignity and you can hold the tears Cause I'm gonna tell you how to get through I've seen all the greats, they come and go Meninga, Wally, Langer, Sterlo Only the men last you know Do you wanna feel like a real man now? Then find a way to forgive her somehow Gotta let it go or you'll never come home She stuffed it up but you're still all alone

Off the bench I've been keeping it warm for too long Time won't forgive me again We all know Taste that wooden spoon In my mouth Take it out Get it out Cause it puts nothing in my belly at night No hunger for a woman or a game or a fight It's a dud feeling alright Off the bench There's no roar from crowd this time round But in my chest I'm exploding again And it's not just from the lap around the park Though that makes a mark There's someone in my heart Off the bench Now I'm off the couch I can dream And I can give it all to Ann-Maree Off the bench I got off the... OFF THE BENCH OFF THE BENCH OFF THE BENCH OFF THE BENCH I picked up the phone with cold clarity Wasn't gonna let life high tackle me When she heard my voice she sighed oh so sweet And now she's on the hill watching down on me
