Dig it! dig it! dig it! Just dig it!

Near Bathurst, state of New South Wales, in 1823,

A certain James McBrien had made a gold discovery.
Then, in the 1850’s, in Victoria, so we’re told,
Sir Edward Hargraves also discovered gold!

Gold fever, try to keep it hush!
No stopping the Australian Gold Rush.
(Gimme some of that) X2

Miles of walking every day, just added to the stress
Of families that were hungry, very poorly housed and dressed.
Water fit for drinking, was in very short supply;
The Hygiene, less than basic; sickness saw too many die.
