Let me tell you of an interview with an Old Man Emu
He's got a beak and feathers and things, but the poor old fella ain't got no wings
"Aren't you jealous of the wedge-tail eagle?"
"While the eagle's flying round and round, I keep my two feet firmly on the ground
I can't fly, but I'm telling you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo".
Well he was the model for the fifty cents -
The designer should have had more sense
If you take a look, it'll prove to you, I ran the pants off that kangaroo.
You can't loop the loop like a cockatoo -
"You silly galah, I'm better by far, than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar;
They squeak and squawk and try to talk, why me and them's like cheese and chalk"
Well the last time I saw Old Man Emu -
He was chasing a female he knew -
As he shot past I heard him say "She can't fly, but I'm telling you
She could run the pants off a kangaroo". -
Well there is a moral to this ditty -
Thrush can sing but he ain't pretty -
Duck can swim, but he can't sing, nor can the eagle on the wing
Emu can't fly, but I'm telling you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo.
Well the kookaburra laughed and said "It's true,
Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah Hoo, He can run the pants off a kangaroo"
