FLASH FRED
Allan Cropper ©

Bugger me dead,
if it isn't Flash Fred,
the slick from the bloody big smoke.
Thought you'd come around here,
with a word in our ear, and
win over the local townsfolk.

Oh, the women, they swooned,
but they found out real soon
that you were a bit of a dandy.
You should have been warned
that our women, when scorned,
will beat you with whatever's handy.

Now, you're sick, sore and sorry,
but Fred, don't you worry
we packed you a bag full of stuff.
We took up a collection,
there's enough here, we reckon,
for a ticket on the next Greyhound bus.

Go back to the city.
It sure is a pity
that you must be leaving so soon.
We'd sure love you to stay,
but best be on your way,
'cause we can't seem to find you a room.

And when you get there,
my good man, don't you dare,
talk dirty of our little town.
We'll set free, just be warned
all those women you scorned,
and I promise you, they'll hunt you down.
