The Shores of Botany Bay (3:49)

Cover of Come Fill Up Your Glasses

From Come Fill Up Your Glasses and 1 other release

A feckless construction/dock worker expands on the “I can always emigrate” idea. Back when Australia was paying for people to come down and build the nation, the whole idea seemed very good if you weren’t thrilled with your current circumstances.

The Irish Rovers take their usual clean, sharp approach here, and the lyrics are easily understood over the instruments.
