Aussie Carols (Part III)

Six White Boomers
[I believe this was originally by Rolf Harris]

Early on one Christmas Day a Joey Kangaroo
Was far from his home and lost in a great big zoo
“Mummy, where's my mummy? They've taken her away”
“We'll help you find your mummy, son. Hop up on this sleigh”

Up beside the bag of toys, little Joey hopped
But they had'nt gone far when Santa stopped
Unharnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far-off booming in the sky

Boom, boing, boom, boing, boom, boing, boom, boing

Six White Boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six White Boomers, snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur-lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey and curled up right away
While those old men kangaroos kept pulling on the sleigh

Then Joey said to Santa “Santa what about the toys?
Aren't you going to give some to all the girls and boys?”
Well they've had all their presents, sonny, we were here last night
This is an extra special trip - Joey's special flight”

Soon his sleigh was flashing past right over Marblebar
“Slow down there”, he cried “It can't be very far
Hop up on my lap here son, and have a look around”
“There she is there's mummy bouncing up and down”

Well that's the bestest Christmas treat that Joey ever had
Curled up in Mother's pouch feeling snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa heading t'wards the sun
the only year the boomers worked a double run.

Yep, that was a Rolf Harris. I have got it around on vinyl somewhere.
