Christmas Lights in the Gumtrees

It’s hot, sunny and dry,
No snow falls,
The cockatoos cry,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum-trees.

A koala climbs and sits and sleeps,
A kangaroo hops by,
We’ve got our turkey and pudding to eat,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum-trees.

Our stockings are hung by the old tin shed,
With a plate of cake and a beer,
Aussie beer not fancy red,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum-trees.

We try to sleep on Christmas Eve,
Will Santa really come?
The light is fading, the cockatoos leave,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum trees.

Christmas morning, presents piled high,
Excited faces all around,
Joeys hop and Galahs fly,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum-trees.

An Aussie Christmas in the Australian bush,
The sun is shining high,
The ice-cream has turned in to Christmas mush,
And there are Christmas lights in the gum-trees.
