An Idyll of Dandaloo

Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson

On Western plains, where shade is not,
    'Neath summer skies of cloudless blue,
   Where all is dry and all is hot,
    There stands the town of Dandaloo —
   A township where life's total sum
   Is sleep, diversified with rum.


Dandaloo is a rural area in New South Wales.
