Fred Dagg – We Don't Know How Lucky We Are lyrics

At the dawn of the day, in the great Southern Ocean
Where the world's greatest fish was being landed
And the boat they were pulling it into was sinking
And the sea was quite lumpy, and the weather was foul
And the bloke with the map was as pissed as an owl
And the boys called out "Maui, ya clown, let it go"
In the noise he reached down for his grandmother's
Jawbone
And he winked at his mates and he said
"Boys, we don't know how lucky we are"
"I have a feeling I have stumbled on something
Substantial. "

We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are

I was speaking to a mate of mine, just the other day
A bloke called Bruce Bayliss who, lives up our way
He's been round the world on an 8th army do for a year,
More or less
I said "Describe the global position, Bruce"
He said "Fred, it's a mess.
We don't know how lucky we are in this country.

We don't know how lucky we are.
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are

There's a guy I know who lives in town

I see him about once a year I suppose
He's had a coronary since Easter
He's got a haemorrhage in his ear
He went bankrupt a couple of weeks back
And now his wife's left him too
I said "You're looking hot mate, You're looking clear,
What are ya gonna do? "
He said "We don't know how lucky we are
To live in this joint mate"

We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are

So when things are looking really bad
And you're thinking of giving it a way
Remember, New Zealand's a cracker
And I reckon come what may
If things get appallingly bad
And we're all under constant attack
Remember, we want to see good clean ball
And for god's sakes, feed your backs

We don't how fortunate we are to have that place
We don't know how propitious are the circumstances.

We don't know how lucky we are, mate
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know how lucky we are, get it right
We just don't realise how fortunate we are
We have no idea, the luck, we possess, collectively
We just don't know how lucky we all are.
Full stop.
