Tie Me Kangaroo Down

(The first verse is almost spoken or narrated) There's an old Australian stockman - lying, dying... And he gets himself up onto one elbow And turns to his mates who are all gathered around And he says.... Watch me wallabies feed, mate Watch me wallabies feed. They're a dangerous breed, mate So, watch me wallabies feed. Chorus: All together now... Tie me kangaroo down, sport Tie me kangaroo down. Tie me kangaroo down, sport Tie me kangaroo down. Keep me cockatoo cool, curl Keep me cockatoo cool. Don't go actin' the fool, curl Just keep me cockatoo cool. (chorus) Take me koala back, Jack Take me koala back. He lives somewhere out on the track, Mack So, take me koala back. (chorus) Let me Abos go loose, Lou Let me Abos go loose. They're of no further use, Lou So, let me Abos go loose. (chorus) Mind me platypus duck, Bill Mind me platypus duck. Don't let him go running amuck, Bill Just, mind me platypus duck. (chorus) Play your digeridoo, Blue Play your digeridoo. (Dying) Like, keep playing it 'til I shoot through, Blue Play your digeridoo. (chorus) Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred Tan me hide when I'm dead. So, we tanned his hide, when he died, Clyde And that's it hangin' on the shed. (chorus)
