The Philippino

The young man from the fishing village in The Philippines as a young boy
Out fishing with his dad in his dad's boat at the weekends he used to enjoy
Till the lust of the wander grew in him for Lands far away
And far south of the Philippines he is living today
In South Western Victoria in Camperdown
He works as a builder in the old country Town
But the wander bug is in him in Camperdown he will not stay
He will be moving on in a not distant day
Though the praises of the hometown many may sing
The lure of the wander is an irrestible thing
The accent of The Philippines with him does remain
And he will be happy to be on the highway again
North on the way to another big town
From South Western Victoria and Camperdown.
