lyrics

When I was a boy me mum made soup
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
When I was a tacker me mother smoked tobacca
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
When I was a young man pissing in a tin pan
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
Mash and bangers, chips and sangas
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD

Me dear old ma would always say
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
You gotta go to school you can't stay this way
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
But what's the use of education
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
I'm OK coz I'm Australian
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD

When I was a bloke with Dazza and the guys
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
We'd go camping and light bush fires
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
We'd have a crack at every stranger
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD
Carrying on like a drunken bushranger
GOOD OLD GREEN AND GOLD

I don't like sport, and I'm sorry but you've got no right to bother me
I'll stick to my own backyard even though it's very big, and very wide
I'm full of misguided patriotic pride, and I don't understand.

But I've got a ute, and I'll drive through the Nullabor with you and me
We'll sleep in a tent by the sea, even though your hair is very long, and very wide
Coz bushrangers they need bush

So let's light a bonfire and
Let's have a barbie aw
We'll cook up all our favourite things
Let's cook up the Liberal party

Come around FOR A BARBIE
Meat pie ON THE BARBIE
Pavlova ON THE BARBIE
Barmy Army on the barbie!

Princess Mary ON THE BARBIE
Royal family ON THE BARBIE
Queen mother ON THE BARBIE
PRINCE PHILLIP MINCE FILLET
