TIE ME KANGAROO DOWN, SPORT   Time: 2/2   Tenor: C   Bass: C


INTRO (RECITE, TAP BEAT ON GUITAR):

*   *             *              *
. . .  There's an old Australian stockman
*      *             *                    *
Lying, dying  And he gets himself up onto one elbow
       *                           *                  *          *
And he turns to his mates, who are gathered round him . . and he says


1                  4           5                  1
Watch me wallaby's feed, mate, watch me wallaby's feed
1                   4               5                  1
They're a dangerous breed, mate, so watch me wallaby's feed (All together now)


CHORUS:
1               4           57              1
Tie me kangaroo down sport, tie me kangaroo down
1               4           57              1
Tie me kangaroo down sport, tie me kangaroo down (All together now)


Keep me cockatoo cool, Curl, keep me cockatoo cool
Don't go acting the fool, Curl, just keep me cockatoo cool

Take me koala back, Jack, take me Koala back
He lives somewhere out on the track, Mac, so take me koala back

Let me Abos go loose, Lew, let me Abos go loose
They're of no further use, Lew, so let me Abos go loose ...
(Modern: substitute "mongoose" for "Abos", less derogatory!)

Mind me platypus duck, Bill, mind me playtpus duck
Don't let him go running amuck, Bill, mind me platypus duck

Play your didgeridoo, Blue, play your didgeridoo
Keep playing 'til I shoot through, Blue, play your didgeridoo

Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred, Tan me hide when I'm dead
So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde
(SPOKEN) And that's it hanging on the shed
