Inanay gupu wanna
Inanay gupu wanna

Ay ay ay oola
Oola oola oola ay
Yippee yay yipee yay

Goo wana goo wana
Goo wana goo wana
Goo wah - Choo!

Hints and Tips: 

  • This is a song in Yorta Yorta, the language of one of the Aboriginal Communities. 
  • It cannot be translated word for word, however, research shows it a song about a goanna, the 'choo' is shooing the goanna away. The word 'goanna' is the English name for the animal, it was their closest approximation of the name Aboriginals used for the animal.
  • Easy ATSI children can learn during group time. 
  • Originates from Torres Strait Islanders.
