Six White Boomers

Six White Boomers

 

An Australian Carol by Rolf Harris called Six White Boomers

In australia, Christmas comes in the middle of a very hot summer.
So when santa claus delivers his presents he’s not taken around by reindeer
because they can’t stand the terrible heat. He’s taken around by six big, white,
old man kangaroos called the six white boomers.

Early on one Christmas Day, a Joey Kangaroo
Was far from home and lost in a great big zoo
Mummy, where’s my mummy, they’ve taken her a-way
We’ll help you find your mummy son, hop on the sleigh

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run

Up beside the bag of toys, little Joey hopped
But they had’nt gone far when Santa stopped
Un-harnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run

Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur-lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey, feeling quite OK
While those old man kangaroos kept pulling on the sleigh

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run

Joey said to Santa, Santa, what about the toys
Aren’t you giving some to these girls and boys
They’ve all got their presents son, we were here last night
This trip is an extra trip, Joey’s special flight

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run

Soon the sleigh was flashing past, right over Marble Bar
Slow down there, cried Santa, it can’t be far
Come up on my lap son, and have a look around
There she is, that’s mummy, bounding up and down

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run

Well that’s the bestest Christmas treat that Joey ever had
Curled up in mother’s pouch all snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa headed northward from the sun
The only year the boomers worked a double run

[Chorus:]
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
.. On his Aus-tra-lian run
