Game As Ned Kelly Lyrics

There's a name that Australia will never forget,
The best known Australian I'd sure like to bet,
Though granted it’s over, dishonoured his name,
Yet one thing is certain, Ned Kelly was game;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.

Oh great was their fame when the Kelly boys rode,
Those daring bushrangers with no fixed abode,
They laughed at the law, a big price on their head,
The troopers could never catch up with wild Ned;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.

They stuck up the stations but never were caught,
But everyone reckons that Ned was a sport,
They captured a township, those bushrangers bold,
Then off to the ranges they rode with the gold;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.

But at last at Glenrowan the Kelly gang fell,
While fighting for life from the burning hotel,
When out came Ned Kelly still blazing away,
'til wounded by troopers he fell in the grey;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.

And so to the gallows the outlaw was led,
"Now die like a Kelly" his mother had said,
"A fate such is life" the bold bushranger sighed,
The trapdoor sprang open and Ned Kelly died;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.

And so young Australians take heed of this song,
Be game as you like but don't do any wrong,
Remember the warning 'that crime doesn't pay',
Remember Ned Kelly and walk the straight way;
"Game as Ned Kelly" the people would say,
"Game as Ned Kelly" they say it today.
