The Lyrics

Australia’s tourists bug me
They piss me off so much
There’s some misunderstanding
You folks are out of touch

I’m known as a koala, so
I’m adored everywhere
I’m here to tell you (baby)

On our branch
You worship us
As we chew our eucalyptus
But you people have misnamed me
Don’t you ever try to dismiss me

Not a bear
“Koala bear”?
I’m not a, not a, not a, not a bear!

Endangered species, by the way,
They put me on the list (Oi!)
They're chopping down our trees all day,
It’s really got me pissed
Need my 19 hours of sleep
But I can’t get no rest
Time for me to get real mean
I’m puffing out my chest

You think I’m cute when I bellow
My claws and teeth are bared
I just wanna scar you (baby)

So you think I’m warm and cuddly
Please don’t bug me, ‘cause things’ll get bloody
Now don’t mess with this marsupial
I’ll take your face out with a fist full

Not a bear
“Koala bear?”
I’m not a, not a, not a, not a bear
Not a bear
Please Facebook share!
I’m not a, not a, not a, not a bear
(Oi!...ohhh Oi!)

Good on you, mate! Koala is not a bear but a marsupial whose closet living relative is the wombat! 555!

I heard that Koalas might look cute but they are in fact one of the most disgusting animals out there. They are one of the few animals to actually have chlamydia and baby koalas eat their mom's poop. Look these facts up if you don't believe me. Koalas are nasty little buggers.

Koala is Abo for "does not drink" but in fact koalas WILL drink water, even from humans, when in drought and the eucalyptus leaves are dry! An Aussie ex-GF told me that a long time ago. Learned a lot about koalas, 'strine, and Kylie Minogue!!!

Cute on the outside but we know the truth.

(Artistry) I liked this a lot. It had a cool point of view and gave some fun info while also being entertaining. Huge props for rhyming both eucalyptus and marsupial! Call me impressed.

(Artistry) A parody about Australian stuff not written by me? What new spore of madness is this?! Seriously though, brilliant stuff here, Agri, simple but to the point. Love how you replaced the "Hey!"'s with "Oi!"'s (though you did miss one). 555!

Excellent work! I didn't know where the topic was going based off the title, but this was a really funny idea (Cake's lead singer could easily pass for a koala just based on his voice!) The pacing was a little off in places, but I can overlook that with the rhymes of marsupial/fist full and worship us/eucalyptus. Well done!
