Any Other Time

Any Other Time
(A.B. (Banjo)Paterson)
All of us play our very best game
  Any other time
Golf or billiards, it's all the same
  Any other time
Lose a match and you always say,
"Just my luck! I was off today!
I could have beaten him quite half way
  Any other time"

After a fiver you ought to go
  Any other time
Every man that you ask says "oh,
  Any other time
Lend you a fiver? i'd lend you two,
But i'm overdrawn and my bills are due,
Wish you would ask me - now mind you do
  Any other time"

Fellows will ask you out to dine
  Any other time
"Not tonight for we are twenty nine
  Any other time
Not tomorrow, for cook's on strike;
Not next day, i'll be out on the bike;
Just drop in whenever you like
  Any other time"

Seasick passengers like the sea
  Any other time
"Something I ate disagreed with me
  Any other time
Ocean travelling is simply bliss
Must be my liver has gone amiss
Why I would laugh at seas like this
  Any other time"

Most of us mean to be better men
  Any other time
Regular upright characters then
  Any other time
Yet somehow as the years go by
Still we gamble and drink and lie
When it comes to the last we'll want to die
  Any other time!
