Jimmy

Jimmy was born with a disfigured arm,
And a lame leg, that he dragged as he walked.
He was part-Aboriginal and had long fair hair,
That he wore in dreadlocks.
He was adopted by a woman who cared for him,
And loved him.
She made him an outgoing and friendly little boy.
Who laughed easily and was happy.
Jimmy moved about without hang-ups,
And you didn't notice his bad arm and leg.
He's left his mum's home in Sydney.
And moved to live in Franklin,
Where he lived in the bush in a shanty
Where he grows his marihuana.
Maybe he smokes and drinks too much
But he's making the most of his life.
He's happy and he'll stay happy always,
As thatís the way he is.
