The Lyrics

This parody is about some rich guy throwin away his wealthy lifestyle to live the basic uncomplicated lifestyle of an Aussie yobbo. I originally submitted this song years ago as "Shearers Singlet" but the pacing was terrible so I've repaced it and re-submitted it under as its new title.
Once I lived in a ritzy mansion,
I drove a red Rolls Royce,
But mate that was years ago;
I left it all behind,
I was high class, wore penguin suits,
I had a bunch of snobby friends,
Mate that was years ago.
I left it all behind, wearin my

Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on, come-on, come-on,

I don’t mind the yobbo life,
Upper class is so uncool,
Frank Sinatra really sucks
Use to play his songs.
Now I like Acca Dacca,
And hang out at pubs,
Now live in a rundown house,
And drive-a Kingswood Ute. Wearin my

Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on, come-on, come-on,

Laying on the grass with a singlet tan, oh yeah!
Hang at the footy with my pub mates, oh yeah!
I’m at the T-A-B blowin all my cash,
Watchin’ the horses, Watchin’ the cricket,
Watchin’ the footy and drinkin down-a slab-o’ VB,
Slab-o’ VB, yeah!
Well anytime you wanna find me,
I’m down at-the local pub
Drinkin’ with my bogan mates,
There I’ll always feel at home, wearin my

Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on, come-on, come-on,
come-on, come-on,
Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on, come-on, come-on,
come-on, come-on,
Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on, come-on, come-on,
I left there wearin my, my my,
Sing-let and-brown stubby shorts,
Flan-no and a pair-o’ thongs,
Come-on,
For non-Aussies who don't know our slang, here are the definitions to some of the words in this parody: singlet - wifebeater tanktop --- flanno - flannelette jacket --- thongs - sandals/flip flops (not to get confused with the g-string lol) --- yobbo - layed back beer drinkin Aussie bloke who loves his footy/cricket, meat pies, gettin pissed with the boys and has a bit of a sexist attitude towards women (also known as bogans/ockers) --- Acca Dacca - AC/DC (us Aussies like to call them Acca Dacca) --- Kingswood ute - 70s Holden brand utility car/pickup truck --- TAB - Australian horse/greyhound race betting service --- slab of VB - 24 pack of Victoria Bitter beer

I gave you a 5 for overall, as it takes the OS and parallels it in true parody style, but the pacing was still pretty bad. 4 for humor. Ooops - make that humour. :-)

Sir, thanks for the effort & all the Austrailian terms! I learned something about the DownUdder culture! But I deplore seeing bare, dirty feet ! and those Toe Rings . . . yuck! It's so unManly! Cowboy Dave said a man needs to be prepared to "kick butt " when necessary! I pray there won't be any rubber thongs & ricePaddy pants at the Rodeo this weekend . . .
