"In Da Scrub"

The Lyrics

Steve Irwin, The BushTucker Man, Crocodile Dundee, all iconic Aussies who make a trip through the outback seem like a wonderful adventure in nature. This parody gives a more Russell-Coight-esque view of the topic. Recording coming soon.
Ute. Ute.
Ute. Ute.
Ute. Ute.

Hits 40. Brittle earth breaks.
A whole swarm of flies and we're thirst-ay.
Our bodies nipped by mozzie bites, get the first aid.
And you know we brought us a truck that is the worst, hey!

We're just riding in da scrub, throttle full ahead.
Wallabies are making tracks. Our ute is all caked in mud.
We enter the outback, the heat really baking up.
Our camp is riddled with bugs, getting into all our rugs.
We're hiking in da scrub. Bottlebrushes, logs,
An army of giant ants that eat all our cake and buns.
I'm into Abo chants, but aint into eatin' grubs.
So come on, get really stuffed. We're dehydrated and lost.

Fill my gullet at pubs with my friends, those yobs.
Then I roll in my Jeep to spend a while in da scrub.
Get to drive the truck all day down these bonza dunes and rocks.
All our snakes are venomous and we're overrun with crocs.
The Yowie pains from his mange, can't drown fleas, nup.
So we flip bunyip the bird, then sniggering we speed off.
When we're fresh out of fuel we must hike a whole damn day for a pump.
Or get with some black girls, I just hope we'll get a hump.

In the bush hide your babies, preying dingos attack.
Oh crikey, how'd Crocodile Dundee like the outback?
The Nullarbor Plain is huge, bigger than most of our locals
Set up camp cuz it seems our map's made up by yokels
These crawling insects man, all run up my behind.
I got these bull ants and millipedes twirling inside.
Hits 47. Feeling half-fried, I'm peeling ya know.
Exhausted, gunna soon die and be skeletal bones.

We're just riding in da scrub, throttle full ahead.
Wallabies are making tracks. Our ute is all caked in mud.
We enter the outback, the heat really baking up.
Our camp is riddled with bugs, crawling into all our rugs.
We're hiking in da scrub. Bottlebrushes, logs,
An army of giant ants that eat all our cake and buns.
I'm into Abo chants, but aint into eatin' grubs.
So come on, get really stuffed. We're dehydrated and lost.

My ute- caput! What bloody good?
Now stuck out in hot desert plains.
Some trip, too vast! No tools, such fools!
We're buggered tryin' to scale past this giant range.

And as we rough it, pray more that we make it.
Figures! This aint what I meant when I said ‘isolated'.
A wombat and galah toasted on a wood fire.
Is that Waltzing Matilda flaunting woollen attire?
Now we hunt for a luncheon a la scrub cuisine,
We eat some goanna bits and a thylacine.
Gunna spew. Indigestion, this bushtucker churns.
Soon my walking will be runny squats and oh dang, it burns!
Here in hell we got no toilet paper, get us 4-ply bark.
Indigenous natives cachinnate, watching whiteys hike past.
Soon we'll be outside and have a forty-inch sub.
Till then, we're just stuck in here

We're just riding in da scrub, throttle full ahead.
Wallabies are making tracks. Our ute is all caked in mud.
We enter the outback, the heat really baking up.
Our camp is riddled with bugs, crawling into all our rugs.
We're hiking in da scrub. Bottlebrushes, logs,
An army of giant ants that eat all our cake and buns.
I'm into Abo chants, but aint into eatin' grubs.
So come on, get really stuffed. We're dehydrated and lost.

[talking:]
Don't try to act like you know where to head, dickhead!
In da scrub with the flies, flick ‘em. Take this route and get lost quicker.

I'd really like to kick the ass of the person that gave you ones, because this is just fantastic! I have to admit though, that I was quite relieved to see the key at the bottom. Otherwise I would have been totally confused. But you did a smashing job on a really difficult song.

So that's what it's really like in the Outback? It's not all like Croc Dundee or Survivor Austrailia? Shattered Illusions =) Good job on a tough song.

I suppose you didn't have time to learn to play a digereedoo.

personally, I never use anything less than 5-ply bark, Luke - gee it'd be great if we could send them an episode of Russell Coight - bonza mate (do you Aussies still use that term?) - 555

Thanks Ash, Jeff, 2Eagle and fellow bush battler Stu. No, I can't play the didj but when I was seven I threw a boomerang and caught it. My next throw hit my younger brother's shins. Hee, Bronza'd Aussies.

I'm working on the John Howard remix because I'd rather have people ridicule his accent than my own.

You gotta have bloomin' onions to do this song! And you do.

Look at all the parodies that Luke has written in.......months. Nice, but I don't listen to 50 Cent. Sorry.

Wow, if feel so educated in aussie slang now. Good show, mate. Started out a little disorienting, but got much tighter pretty fast. You know what they say, 'Good times are good, but bad times make MUCH better stories'. I wasn't sure if ute was one syllable or two, but the bridge cleared that up for me. Fave lines:

"So we flip bunyip the bird"

"Don’t try to act like you know where to head, dickhead!"

Hey Luke? For ur information, we Aussies do not, i repeat, not say'bonza'. You hear me?!?!??!?! How come every bloody American assumes that we say that. It pisses me off!
Stuart McArthur - May 16, 2005 - Report this comment
I goddamm agree with bobpiecheese, Luke dude! Americans have no right to tell them Austrians how to talk - us goldanged Yankee sonsofbitches should stick with our own dang cotton-pickin' lingo, y'hear

*spits out wad of chewing tabacca* ....asshole

Great fun here, Luke. And Stuart --- whoiiiy-mate, sounds like you threw a few too many binkie-binkies on the blabilloo-billywoo, you knowillaby what I meanallaby? ;-)

I sure-as-shootin' do, Johnny D - or as I believe them rootin-tootin Austrians say, "maybe I've got a few too many kangaroos running loose in my top paddock"

could you do an Aussie- authenticity check on that, bobpiecheese, dude....er, mate?

Hey Luke? For ur information, we Japanese do not, i repeat, not say "velly humollous" - we say "leally humollous" - and I should know, because I'm leally humour-less myself
