Connie Mac

He has shorn sheep in shearing sheds in the outback
The big broad chested shearer known as Connie Mac
In his mid sixties his hair silver gray
He recently has given shearing away
He does not know if he has helped to create children but he never had a wife
One who has never been short of women in his life
Back in the days when his hair was dark brown
He did have a girl friend in every country town
One who drank hard and worked hard for his every pay
For the shearer in life there is no easy way
Brown wrinkled face that of years working under the hot sun does tell
But apart from this he is one for his years who looks healthy, strong and well
Connie Mac a top shearer in his physical prime
But for his best one has to go back in time.
