The Lyrics

You read all about the kangaroo
When you were just a child,
A devil if you get too close,
It lives out in the wild.
I always wanted to see one
And some day I'm going to,
But for now I'll drink my Lindeman's
And dream of kangaroos.

Kangaroo, it hops across the sand,
Kangaroo, the wonder of the land.
It never left Australia
And I still don't know why,
But I'm gonna see my friends there
When I can afford the flight.

It seems so full of life,
But it can act just like a grouch,
When little baby kangaroos
Are tucked inside its pouch.
I know someone who hit one
Because it wouldn't move,
There's no speed limit in the Outback,
Poor little kangaroo!

Kangaroo, it hops across the sand,
Kangaroo, the wonder of the land.
It never left Australia
And I still don't know why,
But I'm gonna see my friends there
When I can afford the flight.

Kangaroo, it hops across the sand,
Kangaroo, the wonder of the land.
It never left Australia
And I still don't know why,
But I'm gonna see my friends there
When I can afford the flight.

Kangaroo, it really is a sight,
Kangaroo, someday I'll make the flight.

Kangaroo, it really is a sight,
Kangaroo, someday I'll make the flight.

Kangaroo, it really is a sight,
Kangaroo....

DKTOS, but I'll give you 4s for what seems like a clever little song. Maybe you could write a sequel based on Bob Dylan, "It's All Over Now, Kangaro"? :)

Ever heard of the Atari version of "Kangaroo?" It was in arcades when the craze was hopping mad!

That's pretty funny. Completely different from the original lyrics and well done.

(ABC3K) I've seen a video clip of a kangaroo being drilled by a F-1 type car; not pretty, but "There's no speed limit in the Outback, Poor little kangaroo!" is too true.

The sad slow beat of the OS, made this all the funnier! And since it's country, I have to give you extra props! Great Job Mate!

(ABC3K) kangaroo? mm, that reminds me, it's nearly dinner-time - they are no longer the pest they used to be since we started eating them (despite Paul McCartney telling us not to) and they're actually not bad, marinated overnight in a little shiraz with a bayleaf - lol - loved it MM - 555
