The Cold Winds Of June

The cold winds of June are blowing up from the bay
Reminds me of Winter in Ireland today
Though in the best winter day in Ireland the weather more severe
Than the very worst winter day that you have here

In the wind and the rain the magpie does sing
To his kind song comes as a natural thing
In every Season and every day of the year
Their flute like notes one is quite likely to hear

A low of two and a high of ten degrees
There is a cold chill in the wintry breeze
North in the Queensland tropics the weather is fine
Today in Mackay a high of twenty nine

After years of drought months of flooding rain
This extreme sort of weather seems hard to explain
It has to be Climate Change would you not agree?
At least anyhow that's how it seems to me.

Australia at its best - it can be a hard country but it has beauty too
