INTRO

(Spoken)
There was an old Australian square dance caller lying, dying,
and this is what he asked his dancers to do when he pass on...


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across, Jane
Turn 'em left around
Chain back across, Jane
Promenade her around (all together now)
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Heads go up and back, Jack
Dosado around
Make a right hand star and turn it once
Once around that old town
Allemande the corner girl, Earl
Dosado your own
Swing that corner gal, Al
Promenade her back home (all together now)
*Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Loose me tie when I die, Si
Loose me tie when I die
Don't you go and cry, Si
Loose me tie when I die

*Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred
Tan me hide when I'm dead
So they tanned his hide when he died, Clyde
And that's it handing on the shed

Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport
 
 

SPOKEN:
There's an old Australian stockman lying, dying.
He gets himself up onto one elbow and 'e turns to his mates,
who are all gathered around and 'e says:

Watch me wallabies feed, mate
Watch me wallabies feed,
They're a dangerous breed, mate
So watch me wallabies feed
Altogether now!

CHORUS:
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport
Tie me kangaroo down

Keep me cockatoo cool, Curl,
Keep me cockatoo cool
Ah, don't go acting the fool, Curl
Just keep me cockatoo cool
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

'n' take me koala back, Jack
Take me koala back
He lives somewhere out on the track, Mac
So take me koala back
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

Let me abos go loose, Lew
Let me abos go loose
They're of no further use, Lew
So let me abos go loose
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

And mind me platypus duck, Bill
Mind me platypus duck
Ah, don't let 'im go running amok, Bill
Just mind me platypus duck
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

Play your didgeridoo, Blue
Play your didgeridoo
Ah, like, keep playin' 'til I shoot thru, Blue
Play your didgeridoo
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred
Tan me hide when I'm dead
So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde
And that's it hangin' on the shed!!
Altogether now!

(CHORUS)

Lyrics by Rolf Harris.
