Meet Me Mate Skip

Skip and I live down in Australia.

He’s me drinking buddy.
Drinks me under the table.

Say g’day Skip

thump..thump

That’s roo for g’day

If you own a pet dog you take it for a walk
round the block after work for exercise. Right?

Skip’s not into walking.
Insists on me riding him round the block.
We attract a few stares but what the heck.

Bet you didn’t know Skip was a child movie star?

Don’t believe me?
Footage from the Australian Film Board
archives shows I’m right.
Skip gets all misty-eyed watching it.
They even wrote a special song for him.

Just give me a Fosters
and a quiet time now he says.
