Tie Me Kangaroo Down
(Rolf Harris)

Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport,
Tie me kangaroo down,

Watch me wallaby's feed, mate,
Watch me wallaby's feed.
They're a dangerous breed, mate,
So watch me wallaby's feed.

Keep me cockatoo cool, Curl,
Keep me cockatoo cool.
Don't go acting the fool, Curl,
Just keep me cockatoo cool.

Watch me platypus duck, Bill
Watch me platypus duck,
Don't let 'im run amuck, Bill
Watch me platypus duck.

Play me digeridoo, Blue
Play me digeridoo
Keep playin' it till I shoot through, Blue
Play me digireedoo

Let me Abos go loose, Bruce
Let me Abos go loose
They're of no further use, Bruce
So let me Abos go loose.

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 him, hangin' on the shed.

Note: The next-to-last verse, which is rather offensive, but evidently
     was acceptable in Australia in the early 60s, refers to Abos, or
     Aborigines. Roughly, the American equivalent would be "darkies". GM
