G'Day G'Day    (1988)

G'day, G'day, how yer goin'?
Whaddya know? Well, strike a light!
G'day, G'day, and how yer go-o-o-in'?
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day and you'll be right

Isn't it great, to be an Aussie?
Takin' a walk along the street
Lookin' in shops, or buyin' a paper
Stoppin' and havin' a yarn with people that you meet

Down at the pub, or at a party
Whenever you're stuck for what to say
If you want to be dinky-di, why don't you give it a try?
Look 'em right in the eye, and say "Good-day"

G'day, G'day, how yer goin'?
Whaddya know? Well, strike a light!
G'day, G'day, and how yer go-o-o-in'?
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day and you'll be right

Now, when Italians meet, they all go crazy
The folks all like to hug each other, too
The Yanks invented "Hi!" and "see ya later"
While the Pommie will shake your hand and say, "how do you do?"

Now watch out for a Frenchman, for he'll kiss yer
The Spaniards go for "Hola!" and "Ole!"
But in the land of the cockatoo, Cork hats and the didgeridoo
When you meet an Aussie, ten-to-one, here's what he'll say...

G'day, G'day, how yer goin'?
Whaddya know? Well, strike a light!
G'day, G'day, and how yer go-o-o-in'?
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day and you'll be right

It's a greeting that you'll hear across Australia
From Geraldton to the Gove and Gundagai
It's as dinkum as the dingo and the dahlia
And you spell it with a "G" apostrophe a "D.A.Y."

G'day, G'day, how yer goin'?
Whaddya know? Well, strike a light!
G'day, G'day, and how yer go-o-o-in'?
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day and you'll be right

G'day, G'day, and how yer goin'?
Whaddya know? Well, strike a light!
G'day, G'day, and how yer go-o-o-in'?
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day...
Just say g'day, g'day, g'day and she'll be right
