Subject: Lyr Req: Oh Schucks ... It's Schuster

Someone on another forum asked for the words to “OH SCHUCKS (sic) ... IT'S SCHUSTER!”--the theme song from the 1989 South African comedy film starring (and written by, and directed by) Leon Schuster.

Video on YouTube here (only the opening credits containing the song).

(For the curious: Description of the film from IMDb here. Description from Wikipedia here. Bio of Leon Schuster here.)

I’ve made a stab at it a transcription, but I could use some help. I have a hunch it would be easier for someone familiar with South African accents and expressions—which I am not.

OH SCHUCKS ... IT'S SCHUSTER!
Words by Kalla Bremer, music by Don Clarke [information from IMDb]

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! (3x)
It’s Schuster!

CHORUS: He’s a darling, a devil, a wag and a wit/
A jester, a joker, a double-crossing twit/
... says come here, chicky, you cocky little rooster
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
It’s schuster!

Deceiver, misleader, ready with a rag(?)
A bragster(?), a prankster, game for a gag
.... booster
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
It’s Schuster!

The rugby protestors say “we don’t want----”
The ... collectors, they give not a ....
... ugler ... way back when
But who’s that new fly-hop(?), that new number ten?

Someone posted these lyrics in response to the original request. Many of the expressions here are unfamiliar to me, but since I can neither confirm them nor supply anything better, I will post them “as is.”

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! It's Schuster.

CHORUS: He's a darling, a devil, a wagon-day wit,
A jester, a joker, a double-crossing twit.
From an excess come-here cheese, a cocky little rooster,
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! It's Schuster.

A deceiver, a steeler, ready with the rag,
A prankster, a gangster, game for a gag.
Oh, boy! Guilty rocking p***ter [poofter?]!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! It's Schuster.

(Instrumental)
(Chorus)

Laat waai kwagga!

(Chorus)

The rubgy protesters say: "We don't want Naas"
The springbok selectors they give Naas a pass.
For a new penny afsleg from the day way back when,
But who's that new fly half? The new number ten?

(Chorus)

A deceiver, a steeler, ready with the rag,
A prankster, a gangster, game for a gag,
Airship to control, guilty rocking oester.
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! It's Schuster.

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, shucks! It's Schuster.
