"The world has many festivals
But still there's none been found
To rival Melbourne's springtime
When Cup Day comes around.
Yes Melbourne in the springtime,
Australia shows the way,
They run the greatest race on earth
In Melbourne on Cup Day."

RICHARD, TREMBATH - Cup Day

"Through the mist of early morning
They come striding round the track,
Nostrils flared and flanks a'foaming,
Chestnut, brown and black,
But one among them stands out,
A mighty chestnut horse,
Whose name became a household word
And changed our history's course.

CHORUS:
Phar Lap means 'lightning'
He won the Melbourne Cup
Way back in nineteen-thirty
With jockey Jim Pike up,
Phar Lap means 'lightning'
And stamina and speed,
Australia salutes you
The finest of the breed.

"Australians love a gamble
And going to the trots,
They love to back a winner
No matter what the odds,
They love to find an idol,
A mighty superhorse,
And they all love a champion
Like Paleface Adios."

RICHARD, TREMBATH - Paleface Adios
