Lyrics

Did you hear the news?
Did you hear the news?
Did you hear the news about Phillip Hughes



Unbeaten on 63
It would have been a century
And what a beautiful cover drive
Gone too soon at 25
Sub rosa faith,
He'll never die
With open arms,
We'll Glorify
A man with strength,
Persisting hard
Australia lost it's best card
Baggy Green upon his head
The Little Don cannot be dead
But now he's home, Raising Cattle on the land
Raise your bat for one last stand
That's when I heard the news about Phillip Hughes

So get up little champ
Get up little champ
Get up little champ
Wake up little champ

So say Hi to Richie and
Give a nod to Don,
But I wish you didn't have to go
Home

And when I drive passed Thistle park
I see him practising after dark
He was a batting prodigy
What a glorious sight to see
With deft touch he has caressed
Our mourning hearts have surely blessed
A man with strength persisting hard
Australia lost its best card
Baggy Green upon his head
The Little Don cannot be dead
But now he's home, Raising cattle on the land
Raise your bat for one last stand
That's when I heard the news
Then I heard the news
Then I heard the news
The I heard the news... about Phillip Hughes
