G’day Mate: Happy New Year

I was gunna send a greeting
For the ‘New Year’from Down Under,
But now I dunno, so let me tell ya.

This really is confusin
Dependin where ya livin,
T’murra’s really yesty, T’day.

Time’s up the creek, no paddle
Deadset I would not kid ya
South is really forward, North’s behind.

It’s arvo in Astrayla
Before the big night out,
By crickey, Hooley Dooley, we will rage.

We’ll go down to the bottlo
And suss it out for sure,
Before we blow the froth off one or two.

At twalve midnight I'll Cooee
Ow ya goin, raise me tinnie
Set a cracker off, no worries, ridgey didge.

Please don’t think I am a yobbo
A bodgy Aussie bludger,
Instead, I’m just an Ocker whose ‘True Blue’.

But enough of all this yabba
I’ve gotta get me skates on,
Before the strike of midnight, sink a few.

But before I go I’ll tell ya
Make yours a real rip-snorter,
Happy New Year one and all I say Hoooroo
