The Lyrics

Out in the long grass, where the snakes lurk
Barefoot Australian fools
Venom could be lethal, they’re so dumb
’Cause nature can be so cruel
Stood by the roadside, nothing passes
In this Australian hell
Then in the distance a police car
But where, though, they cannot tell

Let's take a walk, out in the bush tonight
In Australia
You could die, out in the bush tonight
In Australia

Deadly spiders often slaughter
Listen, the victim screams
Crocodiles waiting in the water
To wreck your Australian dreams

Let's take a walk, out in the bush tonight
In Australia
You could die, out in the bush tonight
In Australia

I only went outside to breath fresh air and walk around
I only went outside to breath fresh air and walk around

It's not a headline in the paper
No-one would think it news
Where is a doctor when you need one
To fix your Australian blues?

Let's take a walk, out in the bush tonight
In Australia
You could die, out in the bush tonight
In Australia
In Australia
In Australia

Out in the bush tonight
You could die

Out in the bush tonight
You could die

In Australia

Stuart might croc your arse for this anti-Oz jingle but I think you did a pretty good job with one of my fav PSB songs.

I don't need to Peter - Australia will go and do it all by itself - it comes with being evil - actually, if you want further evidence how scary and evil Australia is, watch any Aussie movie of the 70s-80s - great idea Matthew, and perfect title sub - 555 - (whoa, what's that thing crawling up my shoulde....

It's not the crocs, spiders and snakes ya gotta worry about, Matthew; it's the dangerous creature, "McArthurusParodyosa" ....
indigenous to the Melbourne area and a really nasty piece of work. ;-) Fun stuff. 555

Maaate. What a corker! As a true blue Aussie (ie originally born in another country but lived here for years) I gotta say I love this parody of yet another brilliant and beautiful PSB song. Bonza, eh?

How has it taken me until today to find this! Like Andrew, I am also true blue Aussie, and a big PSB fan. Friggin love this work! Now if we could only get the Boys to sing it, we'd have a better ad campaign for tourism than "where the bloody hell are you?". FTR we don't know who Lara Bingle is either. Nor do we care. We're just sorry.
