Tie the sheets to the green washing line
And check if the weather's fine
It's that time of the calendar year
The Chateau Aluminium wine
Are the kids washed and t-shirts clean
Like your weekly women's magazines'?
October

By noon it's a sure thing that tempers will rise
As the first of the kegs are drained dry
Contemplating the last of the roast
"Is that your wife that's kissing the under 12's coach?"
The prodigy's job is to drive the kids home
Newspaper hats and a hair-frosted comb
October

Have you caught up on your neighbours life?
Let's drink to the red in the heart of the sky
It's over
It's over
It's over

    General CommentBoulder is a town in Western Australia. It's near Kalgoorlie, where Tim spent his early years. My mum and my sister used to have a World Vision tent at the Boulder Fair. You were dying to know that weren't ya?
