Tie Me Kangaroo Down Spot

Tie Me Kangaroo Down Spot Aussie Childcare Network

There's an old Australian stockman, 
lying, dying. He gets himself up on 
one elbow, turns to his mates, 
who are gathered 'round, and he says: 
 
Watch me wallaby's feed, mate, 
Watch me wallaby's feed. 
They're a dangerous breed, mate, 
So watch me wallaby's 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.
