The Overflow of Clancy is a poem written by Herbert Humphrey Cripps Clark under the pseudonym "H.H.C.C". It was first published in The Bulletin magazine on 20 August 1892 as part of the Bulletin Debate, a series of poems by Lawson, Paterson, and others, about the true nature of life in the Australian bush.

Colin Roderick, in his biography Banjo Paterson: Poet by Accident (1993), states on page 76 that he believes the poem was written by Henry Lawson.

The poem is a parody of Paterson's Clancy of the Overflow.
