Subject: Lyr Req: Nick O Teen & Al K Hol
G'day out there on the mud flats,

A totally different, non-mudcat photography ... hey! There is life out there ...) query, to me, had a tag asking about "Cigarettes and Alkayhol". That immediately triggered some remaining neurons that remembered me watching Rolf Harris ... in the Kangaroo Enclosure of Taronga Zoo, Sydney - launching his novelty song "Tie Me Kangaroo Down" ... Sunday 20 September, 1959 (... all right ... it was my 14th birthday excursion to the zoo!).

I remenber the refrain of the support song ( ... B Side ... ?) as:

I never Gargled, I never gambled,
I never smoked at all ...
Unti I met my two good amigos,
Nick-O-Teen and Al K Hole! (~)

I have heard that one a lot less than "Tie Me Kangaroo Down" ... like, never again ... but it might be the one my camera collector colleague seeks!

I couldn't sneak up on anything in the depths of the Mudhole ... but there are innumerable possible spellings involved!
