Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: John Williamson

July 19th, 2009 at 06:48pm

This week’s award goes to John Williamson, and the feature song is Old Man Emu.

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?” – dom ba da littra da da da

(Spoken in tempo) “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 off a kangaroo”.

doo dee ba doo doo doo , boo da da doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly, but I’m telling you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo.

Well he was the model for the fifty cents – oom ba da littra da da da
The designer should have had more sense – oom ba da littra da da da
“If you take a look, it’ll prove to you, ha ha ha I ran the pants off that kangaroo”.

Doo dee ba doo doo doo…Boo da da doot doo doo..
Take a look it’ll prove to you, he ran the pants off the kangaroo.

He can’t loop the loop like a cockatoo – Oom ba da littra da da da
Swoop and toss like an albatross – Oom ba da littra 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 da Doo dee ba doo doo doo…Boo da da doot doo 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 littra da da da
He was chasing a female he knew – Oom ba da littra 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 da Doo dee ba doo doo doo Doo dee ba doo doo doo
She can’t fly but I’m telling you, she can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well there is a moral to this ditty – Oom ba da littra da da da
Thrush can sing but he ain’t pretty – Oom ba da littra 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 he said “It’s true, oom ba da littra da da da,
Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah Hoo, He can run the pants off a kangaroo Hoo Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah Hoo Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah”
