Two days into autumn
The summer, it has left us now
Down here in W.A.
Although it’s still as hot as hell
It be the second day
Of autumn, that’s the way it goes
Twill be a week or two
Before the temperature does drop
We’ll have to see this through.
So in another couple of weeks
Our days will be more, cool
And most who live in our climate
They’ll think it’s wonderful
As they wait for rain to wet the ground
It’s been some eighty days
Since we felt the rain splatter
From skies, so cloudy grey.
All our lakes are almost dry
The grass is burnt and brown
So when that rain comes from the sky
It will hardly make me frown
I’ll sing, and dance, and get all wet
Just like a little child
I love it when the rain comes down
It drives my senses wild.
