It was back in the 18 hundred's

While out driving sheep,

That a Yowie was spotted

In Kilcoy bushland thick and deep.

He was big and black and hairy,

Almost like a man. 

The drovers watched in terror,

Then off to the town they ran.

They ran into the pub 

And told them what they saw.

The townsfolk combed the bushland,

But couldn't find that Yowie anymore.

Later he was spotted by two boys at Sandy Creek.

Their mother said it was the Mayor,

Out for a morning leak.

The years went by and sometimes he's been spotted here and there.

A website has been started, but proof remains so very rare.

Still, Kilcoy loves the Yowie and a statue stands erect.

Though bits of him are missing 'cause some people do object. 

The legend of the Yowie is a good one to be sure.

Someday we're going to catch him and have him stuffed by our door.
