When Marvin Met His Match


The legend Marvin Hagler
went to Australia
he drove off the beaten track
ended up bein’ shown ’round the Outback
by an Aborigine one hot afternoon
Who told him he’d meet his match soon
In the form of a boxing Kangaroo called Billy
After 5 rounds, he made Marvin look extremely silly
Quite a battering Marvin did take
His cornerman said “Comin’ here was a mistake”
But Marvin, in a moment of clarity
Said “I don’t mind losin’ cause it’s all for charity
“And this is a great country
with fantastic scenery
“And great bars, line up The Castlemaine…
“The great taste of Vegemite, I can’t explain
“But it may be a while ’til I come here again”
As he nurses a cut eye on the Qantas plane…
