The Lyrics

This is kind of a sideways flip of the original song. Instead of a British girl making vague references to American cities, this time it's an American girl being a hell of a lot more specific about the origin of the object of her affections. "Ayers" is pronounced "Airs", BTW.
Australian Boy (American Girl):
Heard you're likin' the way that I sound (yeah)
Yeah, accent is twistin' my vowels (your vowels)
I've been tourin' round the world for now (huh)
Just touched down in New York town (huh)
I saw your ginger crown (uh)
Tellin' me you wanna go down under now (yes)
Well, I think that I can affo-ord me
Thanks to exchange rates, one mo-ore seat

American Girl:
Take me on a trip, I'd like to go-o so-ome day
Take me to Darwin, I'd love to see-ee SA
I really want to come kick it with you (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You'll be my Australian boy

He said "'Ey, shiela, it's pretty bloody nice to meet ya"
I just met this six foot somethin' guy and he seems nice
All the slang he's speakin', my confusion is peakin'
But he explains to me what "Dingo Whoop Whoop"'s really meanin'
And no, he don't call it "fall", no way
His "autumn" lasts from March to May with no snow after, strange
Love to go to Sydney, see that opera house thingy
I'm likin' this Australian boy, Australian boy

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go-o so-ome day
Take me to Queensland, I'd love to see-ee SA
I really want to come kick it with you (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You'll be my Australian boy, Australian boy

Wanna go out to the Outback, take me to Ayers Rock
Uluru? I'm sorry, hope that didn't put you off (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Like our conversations 'bout what foods I should
Try when I get to Hobart, hope that Vegemite tastes good (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Tell me this, cause I don't know:
Quotin' "Crocodile Dundee", is that the best of jokes (ah-ah)?
Oh-oh, so-o i-it's not? Dodged that, thank God (ah)
I'm likin' this Australian boy, Australian boy

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go-o so-ome day
Take me to Melbourne, I'd love to see-ee SA
I really want to come kick it with you (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You'll be my Australian boy, hopin' prawns are good

Australian Boy (American Girl):
I'm flattered at all of this, mate, but you might be makin' a mistake
Listen to me, I don't wanna see that cute smile leave
I think that I'd better run down, down the diff'rences now, now
Because where I'm livin' now, now won't make you go wow, wow (huh)
It's only a flat, nothin' special (uh-huh), rent's decent without bein' stressful (ha)
The internet buffers at a really slow rate, so just be careful
Tend to eat Macca's when I'm not heatin' a pie that's Balfour's
Pie's not fruit, no, they're meat, that's how we have 'em, uh (haha)
Not all of us Aussie folk (yeah) say words like "mate" and "G'day", no (whoo)
And if you say those words to them, can't say it's a joke, they'll hate you so (whoo)
I just thought you should know all of that so your enjoyment trumps disappointment
Still wanna come to O-O-Oz? Better pack your bug spray and ointment
Because you're gonna find that those mozzies are all really annoyin'
But I bet you'll love it cause I'll be there bein' rugged

American Girl:
Well, it sounds quite fun, qui-uite fun (and that's no lie-ie-ie)
Small changes a-are fun, a-are fun (I love the slight)
Want some real Oz fun, O-Oz fun (ooh-ooh)
Would you be my Australian boy, Australian boy

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go-o so-ome day (ooh-ooh, some da-ay)
Take me down to Canb'rra or whicheve-er state (I wanna see-ee your states)
I really want to (you) come kick it with you (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You'll be my Australian boy, be my Australian boy

La-la-la-la-la-ee-ah (la-ah-la)
La-la-la-la-la-ee-ah (ooh-ooh)
La-la-la-la-la-ee-ah

I wouldn't say that the Aussie in this parody is based on me. After all, he has the cash to tour around the world. And is involved in romantic shenanigans. And lives in a flat. And says the world "shiela". I can explain what Dingo Whoop Whoop is, though (it's means "the middle of nowhere").
