  • Song Lyrics:
    There's an old Australian stockman lying dying
    And he gets himself up onto one elbow
    And he turns to his mates who are 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

    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

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down

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

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down

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

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down

    And mind me platypus duck, Bill
    Mind me platypus duck
    Oh, don't let him go running amuck, Bill
    Just mind me platypus duck

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down

    Play your didgeridoo, Blue
    Play your didgeridoo
    Oh, like keep playing till I shoot through, Blue
    Play your didgeridoo

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down

    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 hanging on the shed

    All together now
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
    Tie me kangaroo down, sport
    Tie me kangaroo down
