The Lyrics

Hey Guys, Lately I've been noticing the abundance of fat and all round bogans down here in Australia. Thought it might be fun to write a song about it. I know it might offend some people, so if it does, I would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks. (There were a few pacing issues, but the odd extra syllable helps accentuate the bagon - ness)
Don’t want to be an Australian Bogan
Don’t want to drink VB or xxxx gold
I’m so sick of wearing singlets and thongs
I hate eating vegemite with ding dongs

When I’m rocking up to Shazza’s place
Grab a Sanger and then I get shit faced
Passing out in the kiddie pool all day
Throw another shrimp on the barbie
Holy crap, where the bloody hell are we?
Don’t want any Mexicans

Our cricket team is led by Ricky Ponting
More runs is what we’ve all been wanting
Our Prime Minister thinks he’s from Hong Kong
And a wranga for deputy is just wrong

We’ve got the likes of Pauline Hanson, Shane Warne but not Marylyn Manson
He’s such an over the top guy
When we’re heading out to the Gabba
See a shiela and we’ll start to grab her
Glass her like a Brisbane Lion

Don’t want to be an Australian bogan
Passed out and constantly hung-over
Like an Abo lining up for welfare
Sending all their half castes to child care

And when we travel to New Zealand
Cause we’re convicts, all their sheep we’re stealin’
Because they’re just so damn polite
Eating Maccas cause we’re grossly overweight
Guess we really are bogans, that’s great
It seems enough to argue
