MY PAL SKIPPY      (Eric Jupp)
Music: Eric Jupp Lyrics: Ted Roberts 1968

Intro:   |F  C  |F     |C    |F C,C,C,C|

Verse 1:
(C)            F      C                    F
How would you like to find a friend that's ever-true?
       C                     F        
Well a kangaroo could be the perfect pal for you.
                  C           F     
Everyone ought to have a kangaroo or two - 
             Gm                         C
'Though it's not a very common thing to do-do-do.
          F       C                   F
Skippy is my best friend, although I like white mice
       C              F           C
And a hippopotamus is really very nice.
          F      C          F
Elephants may be popular in Timbuktu,
        C                  F
But I'd rather have a kangaroo.


CHORUS:
          Bb
She has a good pouch for minding
        F
All the treasures I'm finding,
       C                       F
But if I overload her she gets hopping mad.
          Bb
And every night in her pocket,
       F
When I help her unlock it,
          C                              C7
There are things we'd forgotten that she ever had.


Verse 2 (shorter):
             F       C                    F
So would you like to find a friend that's ever-true,
        C                     F            C
Well, a kangaroo could be the very one for you.
           F         C               F
Skippy's a real good pal, the best I ever knew:
        C                    F    
She's a real Australian kangaroo-roo-roo.
        C                    F  
She's a real Australian kangaroo.


Verse 3:

|F    C   |F        |C        |F        |

|F    C   |F        |Gm       |C        |
[Instrumental to first four lines of the verse]
          F       C                   F         C
Skippy is my best friend, although I like white mice
       F    C         F           C   
And a hippopotamus is really very nice.
          F      C          F
Elephants may be popular in Timbuktu,
        C                  F
But I'd rather have a kangaroo.


CHORUS:
          Bb
She has a good pouch for minding
        F
All the treasures I'm finding,
       C                       F
But if I overload her she gets hopping mad.
          Bb
And every night in her pocket,
       F
When I help her unlock it,
          C                              C7
There are things we'd forgotten that she ever had.


Verse 4:
              F       C                    F
So, would you like to find a friend that's ever-true?
       C                     F            C
Well a kangaroo could be the very one for you.
           F         C               F
Skippy's a real good pal, the best I ever knew:
        C                    F 
She's a real Australian kangaroo-roo-roo.
        C                    F
She's a real Australian kangaroo.

A real Australian kangaroo.
  C                    F C,C,C,F. [Stop]
A real Australian kangaroo.
