C                     F       C                D7  G7   C
Let me tell you of an interview with an old man emu,    he's got a beak and 
F             C                                G        C
feathers and things,  but the poor fella ain't got no wings.
C                     F            C
Aren't jealous of the wedge-tailed eagle?
                        D7    G7
Oom  ba  da little  da  da    da.
          C               F           C                     D7  
While the eagles flyin' round and round, I keep my two feet firmly on the
G           C                F       C
ground;  I cant fly, but I'm tellin' you, I can run the pants off a  
G      C
Kangaroo.
            C           F         C                  D7    G
Ba  da  da  Doo  dee ba doo doo doo, Boo dad a doot  doo  doo. 
C                     F        C                              G       C
He cant fly , but I'm tellin' you, He can run the pants off a kangaroo.

Thats the basic chord structure, so here's the rest of the words of the song.

V.2
Well, he was the model for the fifty cents
Oom ba da little da da da
The designer should've  had nore sense,
Oom ba da little da da da
If you take a look, it will prove to you, Ha ha ha ha,
I run the pants off that kangaroo...
Ba da da Doo dee ba doo doo doo.
Take a look, it will prove to you.
He ran the pants off a kangaroo.
V.3
You cant loop the loo like a cockatoo.
Omm ba da little da da da,
Swoop and toss like an albatross
Oom ba da little da da da.
You silly galah, I'm better by far
Than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar,
They squeak and squawk and try to talk,
Why me and thems like cheese and chalk.
Ba da da  Doo dee ba doo doo doo.
He cant fly, but I'm tellin' you, He can run the pants off a kangaroo.
V.4
Well, the last time I saw old man emu,
Oom ba da little da da da,
He was chasing a female he knew,
Oom ba da little da da da,
As he shot past, I heard him say,
She can't fly, but I'm tellin you,
She could run the pants off a kangaroo.
Ba da da, Doo dee ba doo doo doo ,
Boo da da doot doo doo doo.
She can't fly, but I'm tellin' you,
She could run the pants off a kangaroo.
V.5
Well, there is a moral to this ditty,
Oom ba da little da da da.
Thrush can sing, but he ain't pretty,
Oom ba da little  da da da.
Duck can swim, but he can't sing,
Nor can the eagle on the wing.
Emu can't fly, but I'm tellin' you,
He can run the pants off a kangaroo.

Well, the kookaburra laughed and he said, "It's true",
Oom ba da little da da da,
Ha  ha  ha ha  Hah, hoo,
"He can run the pants off a Kangaroo".  THE END

I hope that somebody can have as much fun as I did playing this little ditty. I 
hope the chords  are in the right places, if not, it wont be to hard to work out.
Enjoy

Lack of formatting. Tab incomplete. This tab is pretty badly formatted and it seems to have unnecessary chords in there. Doesn't sound correct at all when I play it.
