"Wild Colonial Boy"

words and music by Sean O'Casey and Dennis O'Casey

  There was a wild colonial boy.
Jack Duggan was his name.
He was born and bred in Ireland
In a town called Castlemane.
He was his father's only son;
His mother's pride and joy.
And dearly did his parents love
This wild colonial boy.

At the early age of sixteen years
He left his native home,
And to Australia's sunny shores
He was inclined to roam.
He robbed the wealthy squireen.
All arms he did destroy.
A terror to Australia was
This wild colonial boy.
