OLD MAN EMU (John Williamson) John Williamson - 1970 Let me tell you of an interview with an Old Man Emu He's got a beak and feathers and things But the poor old fella ain't got no wings Aren't you jealous of the wedge-tail eagle? Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da "While the eagle's flying round and round I keep my two feet firmly on the ground Now, I can't fly, but I'm telling you I can run the pants of a kangaroo" Ba-da-da-da-doo-do-doo-doo-da-doo-da-doo-doo He can't fly, but I'm telling you He can run the pants of a kangaroo Well he was the model for the fifty cents Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da The designer should have had more sense Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da "If you take a look, it'll prove to you I ran the pants off that kangaroo" Ba-da-doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-doo-da-doo-doo Take a look it'll prove to you He ran the pants off the kangaroo You can't loop the loop like a cockatoo Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da Swoop and toss like an albatross Oom-ba-da-liddle-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 them's like cheese and chalk" Ba-da-doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-doo-da-doo-doo He can't fly but I'm telling you He can run the pants off a kangaroo Well the last time I saw Old Man Emu Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da He was chasing a female he knew Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da As he shot past I heard him say "She can't fly, but I'm telling you She could run the pants off a kangaroo" Ba-da-doo-doo-da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-doo-da-doo-doo She can't fly but I'm telling you She could run the pants of a kangaroo Well there is a moral to this ditty Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da Thrush can sing but he ain't pretty Oom-ba-da-liddle-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 telling you He can run the pants off a kangaroo Well the kookaburra laughed and said "It's true" Oom-ba-da-liddle-da-da-da "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hoo He can run the pants off a kangaroo Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha"
