I only wish I had a knife, you blessed murdering shark! It is a story about a barber who plays a practical joke upon an unsuspecting man from the bush. But you'll remember all your life the man from Ironbark. He raised his hand, his brow was black, he paused awhile to gloat, Then slashed the red-hot razor-back across his victim's throat; Upon the newly-shaven skin it made a livid mark, No doubt it fairly took him in, the man from Ironbark. I only wish I had a knife, you blessed murdering shark! He loitered here, he loitered there, till he was like to drop, Until at last in sheer despair he sought a barber's shop. Barry Humphries did a one-man Banjo Paterson show and he 'was' Paterson - brilliant rendition of Banjo's poetry.

But you'll remember all your life the man from Ironbark. I only wish I had a knife, you blessed murdering shark! If you read this Bill, know that I love you - but not in a gay way! A peeler man who heard the din came in to see the show; He tried to run the bushman in, but he refused to go. He set to work with tooth and nail, he made the place a wreck; He grabbed the nearest gilded youth, and tried to break his neck. But you'll remember all your life, the man from Ironbark. A peeler man who heard the din came in to see the show; He tried to run the bushman in, but he refused to go.
