Try as I might, I cannot get my turntable to work, and therefore cannot post the lyrics to Christmas in Australia by Roaring Jelly for you.

I apologise for keeping you hanging on.

Can anyone else help???

Cheers

Can anyone help? Is there anyone out there with a copy of the only (Derby Band) Roaring Jelly LP. Have tried to contact Free Reed but get no answer. Would like especially to get words, etc to Christmas in Australia...but the entire record as well. Anyone know to a copy?

CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA.

Spoken
Forget your snow and reindeer and all that there malarky
'Cause down here Father Christmas wears a pair of shorts.---- KHAKI.


Chorus.
Christmas in Australia, is Christmas in paradise,
Christmas in Australia is basically, 'Bloody Nice',
Bruce goes steady with Sheila, and Sheila goes steady with Bruce,
And if you don't have a Christmas suntan, you're a 'Pommie' and you ain't no use


It's ninety in the shade at Christmas, the sun's a blazing 'phew',
So grab a tube of Foster's and a slice of cold kangaroo.
Bruce is waxing his surf board, and waxing his Shiela too,
It's a great Australian Christmas, ya-hoo.

Chorus.

It was a lovely sunny Christmas, we had a party on the beach,
Sang Australian carols, you should have heard us screech.
Our 'Silent Night' was a burst of light and the likes are heard only seldom,
Of 'Once In Royal Bruce's City', in a little town called Melbourne.

Chorus.

Bruce and Sheila disappeared round the far side of the truck,
They were gone for quite some time, we shouted, "Are you stuck?"
Then I had a bright idea, said, "I know what I'll do,
I'll play 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful' on Bruce's didgeridoo.

Chorus

As the afternoon wore on everyone got paralytic,
A drunken brawl developed from a friendly game of cricket.
Rolph Harris turned up finally to distract us from our combat,
By painting a lovely picture of Rudolf the Red Nosed Wombat.

Chorus.



enjoy

Pete

It worked for us - see CD Page !

There were 2 LPs, not one. If memory serves the first was Golden Grates, the second (from which Xmas in Australia comes) was In the Roar.
