The Summer Fairy Song

Fairy, fairy, in the garden,

Will you come tonight?

Dancing in the cool moonlight,

All silver sparkling white.

 

Fairy, fairy, in the garden,

Will you come tonight?

Dancing in a little ring,

What magic will you bring?

 

Fairy, fairy, in the garden,

Did you come last night?

I can tell that you were here,

My little fairy dear.

(sung to the tune of Mary, Mary Quite Contrary)

 

Old Man Emu – John Williamson

Let me tell you of an interview with an Old Man Emu

He's got a beak and feathers and things

But the poor old fella ain't got no wings

 

Aren't you jealous of the wedge-tailed eagle

Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da

While the eagle's flyin' round and round I keep my two feet firmly on the ground

 

Now I can't fly but I'm tellin' you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo

Ba-da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-do-do, doo-doo

He can't fly but I'm tellin' you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo

 

You can't loop the loop like a cockatoo

 

Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da

Swoop and toss like an albatross

Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da

 

You silly gallah, I'm better by far, than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar

They squeak and squawk and try to talk, why me and them's like cheese and chalk

 

Ba-da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-do-do, doo-doo

He can't fly but I'm tellin' you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo

 

 

Dancing Face

You can walk and talk

You can dance and sing

Round and round

In a rosy ring

You can swim in the sea

You can fly through space

But can you make a dancing face?

 

Wiggle your nose – blink your eyes

Lift your eyebrows – and look surprised

Wriggle your mouth – make a funny sound

Poke out your tongue – move it around

Now you’ve made a dancing face!

 

Ruffle your hair – puff your cheeks

Pull your ears – click your teeth

Eyebrows up – eyebrows down

Make a smile – make a frown

Put it together – it’s all it takes

For you to make a dancing face

Dancing face

Dancing face

 

Cuddly Koalas

Cuddly Koalas, Cuddly Koalas.

Possums, too, Possums, too.

Wallabies and Wombats,

Wallabies and Wombats.

Kangaroo, Kangaroo

(Sung to Frere Jacques)

 

 

 

She sells sea shells by the sea shore

She sells sea shells by the sea shore

She sells sea shells by the sea shore

 

Brown and grey and blue yellow pink white green

Brown and grey and blue yellow pink white green

 

Birds in the sky 

Singing songs

Flying  high, while….

 

She sells sea shells by the sea shore

She sells sea shells by the sea shore

 

Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport

Watch me wallabies feed, mate

Watch me wallabies feed,

They're a dangerous breed, mate

So watch me wallabies feed

Altogether now!

 

CHORUS:

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

Ah, don't go acting the fool, Curl

Just keep me cockatoo cool

Altogether now! (Chorus)

 

'n' take me koala back, Jack

Take me koala back

He lives somewhere out on the track, Mac

So take me koala back

Altogether now!  (Chorus)

 

And mind me platypus duck, Bill

Mind me platypus duck

Ah, don't let 'im go running amok, Bill

Just mind me platypus duck

Altogether now!  (Chorus)

 

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 hangin' on the shed!!

Altogether now!

 

We are the children of the Dreaming

I am a child of the Dreaming

From a strong and Noble Clan

And I strive to keep our Culture

The best way that I can

 

We sing the songs and dance the dances

As in days of old

To tell the story of my people

I dreaming to unfold

 

We are the children of the dreaming

From a strong and Noble Clan

And we strive to keep our Culture

The best way that we can
