Australian Cricket Medley

Every Day is a Rainbow Day for Me by Jack Lumsdaine & Donald Bradman; Our Eleven by Jack Lumsdaine; Take off your Hats to Bradman by Edmund Luke & Dunbar Carey; Keep your Tail up Kangaroo by Neil McBeath; Bowl a Ball by Daniel Boone & Rod McQueen
author of text

Two songs mentioning Bradman, another in which he was co-writer, a further ditty urging a kangaroo to keep its tail aloft—as if it needed to be told—and an infectious, bouncy closing number to maintain Australia’s triumphalist tone in this musical jaunt down under.
