Reference: 
Peter Combe - Mr Clickey Cane

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.
Don't go acting the fool, Curl,
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.

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.

Mind me platypus duck, Bill,
Mind me platypus duck.
Don't let him go running amuck, Bill,
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.
Keep playing 'til 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.

(spoken)

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.

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree, 
Merry merry king of the bush is he. 
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra, 
Gay your life must be! 

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree, 
Eating all the gum drops he can see. 
Stop Kookaburra, stop Kookaburra 
Save some there for me! 

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree, 
Counting all the monkeys he can see. 
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra 
That's not a monkey, that's me! 

Alternative Lyrics:

Kookaburra sits on the electric wire,
Jumping up and down, with his pants on fire.
Ouch, Kookaburra, ouch! Kookaburra,
Hot your tail must be!

Kookaburra sits on a rusty nail,
Gets a boo-boo in his tail.
Cry, Kookaburra, cry, Kookaburra,
Oh how life can be!

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Eating all the gum drops he can see.
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra
Gay your life must be!

Hints and Tips:

  • Search for the rhyming words in each verse.
  • Use it as part of an Australian animal theme.

Old Mother Hubbard 
Went to the cupboard, 
To give the poor dog a bone; 
When she came there, 
The cupboard was bare, 
And so the poor dog had none. 

She went to the baker's 
To buy him some bread; 
When she came back 
The dog was dead! 

She went to the undertaker's
To buy him a coffin;
When she came back
The dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish
to get him some tripe;
When she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the alehouse
To get him some beer;
When she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

She went to the tavern
For white wine and red;
When she came back
The dog stood on his head.

She went to the fruiterer's
To buy him some fruit;
When she came back
He was playing the flute.

She went to the tailor's
To buy him a coat;
When she came back
He was riding a goat.

She went to the hatter's
To buy him a hat;
When she came back
He was feeding her cat.

She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig
When she came back
He was dancing a jig.

She went to the cobbler's
To buy him some shoes;
When she came back
He was reading the news.

She went to the sempstress
To buy him some linen;
When she came back
The dog was spinning.

She went to the hosier's
To buy him some hose;
When she came back
He was dressed in his clothes.

The Dame made a curtsy,
The dog made a bow;
The Dame said, Your servant;
The dog said, Bow-wow.

This wonderful dog
Was Dame Hubbard's delight,
He could read, he could dance,
He could sing, he could write;

She gave him rich dainties
Whenever he fed,
And erected this monument
When he was dead.

Alternative Lyrics:

Old Dame trot,
Some cold fish had got,
Which for pussy,
She kept in Store,

When she looked there was none
The cold fish had gone,
For puss had been there before.

It's raining; it's pouring. 
The old man is snoring. 
He went to bed and bumped his head, 
And he wouldn't get up in the morning.

Baa Baa PINK (any colour) sheep 
Have You any SPOTS?

And one on my Tummy, 

One on my Nose 
And that's not funny 
(but is really is!!)

Have you any spots?

Yes sir, yes sir
Lots and lots!

  • Instead of spots use a different pattern (stripes, wavy)
  • Use colour flashcards to help child identify colour of the sheep
