Subject: RE: BS: Rolf Harris's accordion catches fire!
open mike and anyone else interested:

Not too sure of some of the spellings in the page pointed to by the blue clicky, so here's a bowdlerised version:

Spoken Introduction: There's an old Australian stockman, lying, dying. He gets himself up on one elbow, turns to his mates, who are gathered round him, and he says:

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

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, Carl,
Keep me cockatoo cool.
Don't go acting the fool, Carl,
Keep me cockatoo cool.

(Chorus)

Take me koala back, Jack,
Take me koala back.
He lives somewhere out on the track, Mac,
So take me koala back.

(Chorus)

Mind me platypus duck, Bill,
Mind me platypus duck.
Don't let him go running amuck, Bill,
Just mind me platypus duck.

(Chorus) [Politically highly incorrect verse, but on the original record]

Let me aboes go loose, Lou,
Let me aboes go loose.
They're of no further use, Lou
So let me aboes go loose.

(Chorus)

Play your didgeridoo, Blue,
Play your didgeridoo.
Uh, like, keep playing 'til I shoot through, Blue,
Play your didgeridoo.

(Chorus)

Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred,
Tan me hide when I'm dead.
(Pause)
So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde,
And that's it hanging on the shed.

(Chorus)
