Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)

Girls can get along now
Without ever even trying,
The negative action Gestapo
Keeps their prospects flying.

So with Big Sister helping them
Why should they waste time learning
Even with their empty heads
It is big bucks they're earning.

Or at least they're being paid
For work that they cannot do,
So why concentrate in class
When the system is this screwed.

Yes, girls are the bludger gender
Still slipping further behind,
No matter how the Gestapo tries
It can't get past their empty minds.

"I bludge, therefore I am!"
Is the motto of girls and women,
Yet still, they publically decry
The fact they earn less than men.

"Equal pay for equal work!"
Would be all right with me,
If only women did the equal work
Which is not what I can see.

Most women don't even try
To work as hard as men must,
Because the Gestapo is a vice
In which they can surely trust.

And so the bludger gender
Keeps on slipping further behind,
Something which will never stop
Until they clean up their minds.
