The Bushmen's Restaurant

Now here’s a little story,
That every one should know.
About a fancy restaurant,
Where all the bushmen go.
The meals on the menu,
They are a great delight.
The waiters are always busy,
Serving bushmen every night.

There’s kangaroo and wallaroo,
And roasted mallee hen.
Fric-a-zee of tiger snake.
And foxes from their den.
They make pikelets out of platypie,
Served with yabbee sauce.
Their possum pies they are the best,
You have the greatest choice.

But! When it comes to tender steak,
It’s the only place to go.
They only have the choicest cuts,
As all the bushmen know.
Their emu steaks are bonzer,
The dingo’s not bad too.
But the wild turkey’s sorta’ tough,
So they make them into stew.

Casseroles are made from crocks,
Their buffalo is great.
Fried scorpions and centipedes,
With damper, on every plate.
Witchetty grubs, with mountain duck,
Wild honey from bush bees.
A boiled tail, from an old bungarra,
Washed down with billy tea.

I could rave and rave for hours,
About the taste of koala bear.
But I don’t think you’ll believe me,
Until you yourselves, been there.
They have the greatest tucker,
Of that you will agree.
They’ll make you feel welcome there,
And every thing is free.
