The Lyrics

This is my first parody using the correct spelling for "ocker". Previously, I had it spelt "occa". And if you were wondering, the original was a huge hit down under about a Vietnam veteran. If the lyrics to the parody don't make sense, that's not a problem, because the original has stupid lyrics too.
I got 5 cents in return for my Coke can
And I sold the cans of Pepsi to the al-Qaeda man
I had the New Zealand cold turkey
From the ringpull to the final sippy
And that's something only Aussies can understand

About the long forgotten Labor guarantees
There were no recycling heroes in 1983
And how I sailed onto Christmas Island
Saw an old can but I couldn't drink it
It was fine and I was home to the lucky land

Now the Diet Coke was young, drinkings long, caffeine content lean
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my small intestine could mend
Held a job at McDonald's
Flipping burgers when I could
But the wages really drove me round the bend

And I've been drinking round the world from Coke to beer
And each drink found me aimless
One more year the worst for wear
And I've been back to California
You know the answer sure ain't there
But I'm drifting off to check things out again!

ChOrUs
Well my last drink for 12 hours almost gone
Just seven flying hours, I'll be in Oakland smoking bong
And it's really got me worried
I ain't drinking and I'm in a hurry
And my last drink for 12 hours almost gone

Hardily any song, let along a Parody, makes sense, so don't sweat it.

Mr. Kleindienst, if that is your real name, have you even heard the original?

Khe Sanh is one of those songs you just shouldn't parody.

It had promise, but you are missing a couple of verses...

As a fellow (althogh its hard to believe with a computer name like mine) I enjoyed this parady very much. Can you do any more Cold Chisel/ Jimmy Barnes tunes??????????????

How dare you!? Khe Sahn should NOT be parodied! It's a classic! If you can't guess, I LOVE Khe Sahn. It's my absolute favourite song. If you must parody it, please, at least get all the verses in!

You got guts, covering the greatest Australian song of all time... But thats all you got. Terrible parody, doesn't make sense (and the original makes perfect sense if you're even moderately intelligent). Cold Chisel should never, EVER be parodied. Ever.

OK, it's been 5 years, and now I admit that this sucked. If I had my time again, I would have either (A) made this parody longer, or (B) never written it at all.
