A December Day

The evening is warm over thirty degrees
And humid with only a very slight breeze
The mosquitoes are biting my legs hands and face
Everywhere they bite of an itchy red mark there's a trace
The warm air full of the buzzing of bush flies and bees
Out of the sun the cattle are sheltering in the shade of the trees
Their way in warm weather of trying to stay cool
In the coastal countryside between Koroit and Warrnambool
Above the paddocks in the blue sunny sky
In pursuit of flying insects the dark welcome swallows fly
On such warm and humid weather the body quickly does tire
And sweat on your hands and face as you perspire
Just a few patches of gray in the blue sunny sky
And the weather forecast for tomorrow again is warm, humid and dry.
