"BOOMERANG"

[Spoken:]
Gidday, kids!
This is Bunny Bighop callin' from Australia.
I've just been sitting around the camp fire
With a couple of musical mates of mine,
And we wrote a song
About something very interesting,
And it goes like this …

Verse 1
If you visit the Australian outback
And you see an Aborigine tribe,
They'll use a peculiar weapon
That's a little bit hard to describe.

Now, it's made of wood, in the shape of a "V,"
And I reckon it's strange but true:
The amazing thing's when you fling the thing,
It flies right back to you!

Chorus [Sung:]
It's a boomerang! It's a boomerang!
It's a boomerang flyin' back to you.
It's a boomerang! It's a boomerang--hang.
It's a boomerang flyin' back to you!

Verse 2 [spoken:]
Now the funny thing about a boomerang
Is like life and how you live it:
The good and bad we do or say
Comes back the way we give it.

So take a tip from me, mates,
Or you're in for a big surprise!
Watch out, 'cause the thing you're flingin' about
Will come back and whack you
Right between the eyes!

Repeat Chorus

Bridge 1
What you do will come right back to you
In a day, or maybe next week!
It doesn't matter how long it takes,
What you sow, you know,
The same you're gonna reap!

Repeat Chorus

Bridge 2
Like the law of gravity:
What goes up,
[Spoken] Tell 'em, Bluey!
"Must come down!"
[Spoken] Yeah, good on ya', mate!
So if people have been treatin' you mean,
[Spoken] Take a real good look at that boomerang
You've been throwin' around!

Repeat Chorus Twice

Ending [spoken:]
Right-e-o!
See ya later, mates!
I'm off to the billabong
To do some barramundi fishin'
Yeah! No worries!
Look after each other now!
Be fair dinkum friends!
Take the advice in this song so you don't have to learn the hard way.
This is Bunny Big Hop!
Ta da!
