Song Lyrics:
Kenny The Kangaroo

Music by Ralph McTell.
These are the Lyrics as sung by Michael Barrymore. They are slightly different to the original lyrics as written by Ralph McTell.

Oh my name is Kenny and I’m a kanga – roo ga-roo, ga-roo
I like to say g’day, g’day, g’day and how do you do,
And if you where ever to ask me what I really love to do,
I’d say boing-a-boing-a-boing all over Australia.

There’s one thing about all baby kanga-roo, ga-roo, ga-roo’s
Everyone is a bouncing babe, their mums are bouncers too,
And if you ever caught up with us and asked what we love to do,
We’ll say boing-a-boing-a-boing all over Australia.

The worst thing that can happen to a kanga-roo, ga-roo,
Is for him to loose his boing and his bounce, and he doesn’t know what to do,
When mud goes hard around your feet and your really stuck like glue,
And you should be boing-ing and bouncing round Australia.

We try to be brave as kanga-roo, ga-roo, ga-roo, ga-roo’s,
Till someone creeps up behind us and they give us a scary boo !
A gog and a glug and waltz out of the mud, and out of me rousky too,
And I boing off into the night in old Australia.

Oh my name is Kenny and I’m a kanga – roo ga-roo, ga-roo
And he is Kenny and he is Kenny and he is Kenny too,
And he is Kenny and he is Kenny and he is Kenny too,
And I boing-a-boing-a-boing all over Australia.

Boing, boing, boing, boing, boing, boing, boing, boing,
Boing-a-boing-a-boing all over Australia.

Hope you liked it. Share and Enjoy.

I'm not sure what Michael Barrymore was thinking when he decided to release this single. Its harmless, but the sight of him leaping around in a kangaroo suit was enough to make anyone laugh !
