Piano Bar and Aussie Songs

Last night, after a great dinner in MC house with shisha and Lucy’s presence after almost 4 months in Thailand, we went to a Piano Bar. I got to know a little more about the Aussie way of enjoying music and obviously learnt some new very Aussie-life-style-description songs. Check it out!

Among The Gum Tree's

I've been around the world a couple of times, or maybe more,
I've seen the sights, I've had delights on every foreign shore,
but when my mates all ask me the place that I adore,
I tell them right away.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two, a ka-kangaroo.
A clothes line out the back, veranda out the front,
and an old rocking chair.

You can see me in the kitchen cooking up a roast,
or Vegemite on toast, just you and me, a cup of tea.
And later on we'll settle down and mull up on the porch,
and watch the possums play.

There's a Safeway up the corner, and a Woolys down the street,
a brand new place they’ve opened up where they regulate the heat,
but I'd trade them all tomorrow for a simple bush retreat
where the kookaburras call.

Some people like their houses with fences all around,
others live in mansions, and some beneath the ground.
But Me, I like the bush, you know with rabbits running 'round,
and a pumpkin vine out the back.

ah, an australian classic.

Growing up in South Africa, i think my parents thought we would be partially australianised if we listened to old australian songs, so 'Jake the Peg' by Rolf Harris or 'I like to have a beer with duncan' by Slim Dusty come out now whenever i'm at karioke ;)

see you soon!
