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-tailed eagle - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
While the eagle's flyin' round and round I keep my two feet firmly on the ground
Now I can't fly but I'm tellin' you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo
Ba-da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-do-do, doo-doo
He can't fly but I'm tellin' you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo
Well he was the model for the fifty cents - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
The designer should have had more sense - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
If you take a look it'll prove to you (ha-ha-ha-ha), I ran the pants off that kangaroo
Ba-da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo, doo-da-do-do, 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 - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
Swoop and toss like an albatross - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
You silly gallah, 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-do-do, doo-doo
He can't fly but I'm tellin' you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo
Well the last time I saw Old Man Emu - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
He was chasing a female he knew- Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da
As he shot past I heard him say
Hoo-choo-ah-hoo-choo-ah-hoo-choo-ah-hoo-choo
She can't fly but I'm tellin' you, she can run the pants off a kangaroo
Ba-da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo, do-da-do-do, doo-doo
She can't fly but I'm tellin' you, she can run the pants off a kangaroo
Well there is a moral to this ditty - Um-ba-da-lip-ida-da-da-acapo
