The Happy Squanderer

I could but only bite at the news, coming hot on the heels of the announcement of Holden's Adelaide plant, that the 2017 Commodore would be made in China.

THE HAPPY SQUANDER

(Sung mostly to the tune of the song with the Val-de-Ri Val-de-ra chorus)

I'm True Blue as Colonel Sanders or a Chinese Commodore,

but all their stuff's so bloody cheap, should a cobber pay any more?

 

This Globalising thing a beaut, the prices sure to please,

and when I'm buying stuff I sing "Australia" in Chinese!

 

Ao-do-li, Ao-do-li-ya, Ao-do-li-ya, Aodoli-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Ao-do-li, Aodoliya! "Australia" in Chinese

 

I'm as Aussie as my Chesty Bonds, me RM Williams boots

And I know what a drongo means when he talks about his roots.

 

We've buggered something, and our jobs begin to disappear..

You might do well to learn more words than singing Aodaliya!

 

Ao-do-li, Ao-do-li-ya, Ao-do-li-ya, Aodoli-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Ao-do-li, Aodoliya! "Australia" in Chinese

 

Indeed ....

Indeed Richard, Indeed!!

2nd Verse

John, I've just written this addition- would you mind adding it to the main text?  Ta!

I'm as Aussie as my Chesty Bonds, me RM Williams boots

And I know what a drongo means when he talks about his roots.

We've buggered something, and our jobs begin to disappear..

You might do well to learn more words than singing Aodaliya!


Ao-do-li, Ao-do-li-ya, Ao-do-li-ya, Aodoli-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Ao-do-li, Aodoliya! "Australia" in Chinese

 

done ....

No worries Richard.

Cheers,

John.

Merry Christmas, John

Hi Richard,

All the Very Best for the Season to you & yours.

Please don't leave it so long for your next visit!!

Cheers,

John.

 

cheers for the silly season...

Hi Richard,

Sorry if I don't say much, but we love your contributions... We're embroiled in a battle against the shift to the extreme-rite of this fair nation which is under the spell of a mediocre mass media gone totally whaco... Have a fantastic end to the old year and a fantastic beginning of the new season — to be carried over for the next few years...

And the same to all our readers.
