On the 16th of December
1860, Sunday
The two horses having been shod
Our reports finished, we started


We found the creek bed
Bring the cup
Three days to water
Drink up


Across cracked clay and stone
To the depot and the dig tree
The cockatoos, pigeons and crows
Starvation in the land of plenty


Across Australia
Burke, Wills & King
From the Never Never
To Cooper Creek


On the Bullah, Bullah
The red gumblegari
Look again, look again
I cannot, I cannot
