Early on one Christmas Day, a Joey Kanga-roo
    *                 3m   4m   27        57
Was far from home and lost in a great big zoo
1                 17             4           1
Mummy, where's my mummy, they've taken her a-way
      *                  *          57         1
We'll help you find your mummy son, hop on the sleigh   (RECITE)

Up beside the bag of toys, little Joey hopped
*               3m   4m       27    57
But they had'nt gone far when Santa stopped
   1                 17           4             1
Un-harnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
*               *       57             1
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky

1         17       4          1
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
*            3m    4m          27      57
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
1         17       4          1
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
*             57       1    *
.. 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

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

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

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
