He’d play the Changi bango made of tin,
The bridge piece was the Rising Sun from off his slouch hat brim,
Had a broomstick neck, and nails to pick his strings,
To the memory of his fallen mates, the Changi banjo rings.

When he came ashore in Sydney like a ghost of skin and bones,
No-one recognised the man behind the haunted face,
No-one knows the sorrows, only he could tell

The bridge piece was the Rising Sun from off his slouch hat brim,
Had a broomstick neck, and nails to pick his strings,
To the memory of his fallen mates, the Changi banjo rings.
