Thanks, Jeremy.

I suppose this is the "Kookaburro sits on an old gum tree" song?

And is this an authentic Australian song?

It's a shame, but the only Australia songs I remember learning in public schools were that song and "Waltzing Matilda".

Now many children don't have music classes, so they might not learn even these songs.

I know this isn't the topic of this thread, but I wish some Mudcatters would share the names and hopefully online sources for lyrics for other Australian folk songs.

Best wishes,
