kangaroo kulture

Standard

To celebrate this street art just off King Street, Newtown, (Sydney) NSW Australia, I’ve combined 3 Australian icons: kangaroos, Rolf Harris and The Wiggles.

 The Wiggles – Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport Feat. Rolf Harris – YouTube 

Here are the words so you can sing along:
Tie me kangaroo down
Watch me wallabies feed, mate
Watch me wallabies feed
They’re a dangerous breed, mate
So watch me wallabies feed, altogether now
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Keep me cockatoo cool, Curl
Keep me cockatoo cool
Don’t go acting the fool, Curl
Just keep me cockatoo cool, altogether now
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Take me koala back, Jack
Take me koala back
He lives somewhere out on the track, Jack
So take me koala back, time to sing again
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Mind me platypus duck, Buck
Mind me platypus duck
Don’t let him go running amok, Buck
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
One more time, tie me kangaroo down.

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a Horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.

  1. I used to love Rolf Harris and Tie me kangaroo down, and Sunarise too. Never heard of The Wiggles although the youtube vid was cool, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the words written down before, I probably only knew the title line as a kid! Loved watching him rattle his drawings together too – perhaps he should do some street art in Sydney? Or maybe he has?

    • Thnx – so I’m not alone! I loved Rolf – as a 5 year old he was my favourite, as was Two Little Boys, and I also like Sunarise. The G.O. has no Rolf appreciation & shakes his head if I sing the tunes, actually if I sing anything but moreso Rolf… Maybe Rolf has been hanging out in King St with his British Paints.

    • It’s great wall art 🙂 The G.O. has a shot of it as his phone screen saver & gets many requests to share. I think quite a bit of work went in to creativing it. Would have been great to see the process.
