The Lyrics

Christmas Day is approaching
And quite rapidly
Time spent with your loved ones
Presents under the tree

But I can't stand the weather
'Cause through my good mood it cuts
The sun is beating down upon my head
This heat is driving me nuts

Really wish I was somewhere
The atmosphere was cool
The kind of place I wouldn't have
To bathe in ice cubes or sleep in a pool

Proud to live in this country
I try not to complain
But the weather at this time of year
It always fries my brain

Because this is Christmas in Australia
Such a scorching place (such a scorching place)
Sweat upon my face
Plenty of heat when it's Christmas in Australia
It's that time of year (it's that time of year)
Barbecues and beer

No point in sitting and waiting
For any snow to appear
And you won't find no winter wonderland
If you come here

What you'll get is your skin burned
Dripping with sweat
And maybe a sunstroke
Worst you'll ever get

So I'll crank up the A/C
And just stay inside
Because every December brings a heat wave
So in here I'll hide

But still the temperature's rising
The trend repeats
Lie awake in the middle of the night
Sweating through the sheets

That's life when it's Christmas in Australia
What a state I'm in (what a state I'm in)
Sunburn on the skin
It's easy to tell when it's Christmas in Australia
Just look for a man (just look for a man)
With a lobster tan

Can't take the exhaustion
That this climate has caused
I guess it's just as well I don't have to dress
Up as Santa Claus

'Cause that red suit would feel like
An oven turned up high
And I would need that big fake beard
Just to wipe my forehead dry

Go out in December
And my tender skin will fry
I guess that I should feel relieved
That my birthday's in July

But I'm sick of roasting
This has really gone too far
Find my passport and I'll pack my bags
And move to Canada

Here's some SPF-555 to slather all over your southern hemisphere skin, mate! I'll be putting some dry gas (isopropyl alcohol) in my car's tank today to keep the ice crystals away - brrrrrr .... actually it's not that cold here today, thank goodness, but we've already had one huge and one medium-sized snowstorm here in New England so far this season.

Boy, your place sounds like Hell. Just to taunt you, it's really cool up here. Temps around here average about 55 tops. Can get as low as 18 at night. You may not like the weather there, but you wouldn't last a day where I am.

Yeah, but on the up side, July doesn't fry your ass.

Maybe you can pack yourself up on December 26. After all, it's Boxing Day! Or is it called that because the heat causes guys to fight over differences they'd settle in cooler weather?

Merry Xmas in Oz-stray-ya :-)

Thanks guys - I exaggerated a little, but it's bloody hot down here.

Sounds like a south Texas summer. You have to pee the bed just to cool off. Nice work Aussie. 555 degrees!

Phew, what timing! It's a scorcher today in Sydney. Well done mate.

I think the title will always make me smile. Good job dude. Stay cool, if that's possible.
Leah Lockhart - December 22, 2003 - Report this comment
Um, I'm currently about 30 miles from the border of Canada and let me tell you, I'd trade places with you ANY DAY!!!! It's cold, windy, and I almost just did a face-plant on a patch of ice. On that note, this was a great idea and I enjoyed it thoroughly!

OK, let's swap. I'll build a snowman large enough to live inside and you can hang out at the beach.

That was er.. cool? Or as Jim Carrey would say, "Smokin'" :-)

Great work, ABD
Paul Robinson - December 24, 2003 - Report this comment
ABD - Great job! saw the "buzz" on this and finally got a chance to look in. You really did this well, I was running it thru my head and the phrasing and pacing is perfect and could actually be sung without having to fudge anything (Rick D, are you listening - well, I mean reading. I'm not sure how "Merry Christmas" would be phoneticized (is that a word?) with an Australian accent so I won't try here.
AussieBullDog - December 24, 2003 - Report this comment
Merry Christmas, everybody! And yes, it's bloody hot down here today.

Look on the bright side, Aussie. At least you don't have to shovel heat! Great parody! Fives away.
John Jenkins - December 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Very humorous parody - all that heat has to be pretty tough on Santa's reindeer.
AussieBullDog - December 26, 2003 - Report this comment
We actually found Blitzen and Dasher at 2am on Christmas morning, lying semi-conscious on our front lawn and suffering from apparent heat exhaustion. At least, that's who they said they were. I mean, it was pretty dark, and they smelled of cheap bourbon, but...

Anytime you want to cool your jets at Christmas, Aussie, come on up to the States. We were driving through snow here in Washington (the state) - not a blizzard, mind you, but enough to let you know you weren't sweating in the land down under. Loved the parody, mate. Freezin' Fives.

I would sure love some of that 100 degree weather - can you send it north? :-)

Thanks, Fives Guy. And tell your nineteen friends thanks for me as well. Meri: Would if I could. But alas, I am but a mere mortal with puny arms.

Great job, but I know bragging disguised as whining when I see it, Ozzy. I'll trade you places - there's so much snow here that my 4WD got stuck in my own driveway this morning. I'm not kidding.

I'd like to point out that those lyrics contradict each other. At the start it's "Proud to live in this country, I try not to complain" but at the end it's "Find my passport, pack my bags and move to Canada" Well, if ya gonna do that, can you speak French alright?
AussieBullDog - January 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, a good song should tell a story, and by the end of this story I've given up and am ready to escape the blistering Aussie heat by moving away for a few months. See? By the way, who are you?
AussieBullDog - January 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh, and Spaff - I know whining disguised as gloating when I see it.

Hahahahaha good one mate!!!! Placed my vote a little too late but it still is pretty much summer and yesterday I copped a singlet tan down at Port Kembla beach. Anyways all 5s from this fellow Aussie!!! It sure was BLOODY HOT on Christmas day in the Illawarra!!! I myself have done a parody on the same subject called "Aussie Christmas" which is a parody of Bing Crosby's "White Christmas". You'll find it in amongst my other parodys on this page .

Spot on; it was 41 degrees celsius (108F) in Newcastle NSW on Christmas 2003.

This parody may be two years old, but it's Christmas time in Australia again, so it's relevant.
