An Aussie Bush Christmas

Mauric Fields

Santa arrives in his horse drawn cart
Although it's real hot he's still playin' the part
Parks in the shade of a Coolabah tree
Rubs, Hoh-hoh-hoh, then slaps his knee

The kids gather 'round in their thongs and their shorts
Black, white and brindle, they come in all sorts
The presents come out and their beauty's no fear
Santa sits down and says give us a beer

An Aussie bush Christmas is a fabulous one
No sign of snow, just hot Aussie sun
But that doesn't matter 'cause this time of year
Christmas is Christmas, even out here

Come mutton and damper and chokin' wild duck
On soft paper plates off the back of the truck
The Coolgardie safe's just loaded with beer
Enough liquid amber to last 'til New Year

The pavlova's meltin', the dogs think its grouse
They've already had half of it under the house
Young Mick Maloney comes down the track
He works in the city but he always comes back

An Aussie bush Christmas is a fabulous one
No sign of snow, just hot Aussie sun
But that doesn't matter 'cause this time of year
Christmas is Christmas, even out here

We're ready to leave and the truck's loaded up
There's nothin' much left 'cept some used paper cups
Old Paddy Maloney's asleep by a log
When he wakes up, he'll be sick as a dog

The spirit of Christmas was with us today
No fir trees, no tinsel, just smiles and g'day
But Christmas is Christmas, whether big, whether small
And an Aussie bush Christmas is the best one of all

An Aussie bush Christmas is a fabulous one
No sign of snow, just hot Aussie sun
But that doesn't matter 'cause this time of year
Christmas is Christmas, even out here

An Aussie bush Christmas is a fabulous one
No sign of snow, just hot Aussie sun
But that doesn't matter 'cause this time of year
Christmas is Christmas, even out here

Merry Christmas

Aussie Jingle Bells

Bucko & Champ

Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden Ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
Its summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way
Christmas in Australia
On a scorching summer's day
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Christmas time is beaut
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden Ute

Engine's getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggy climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the family is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbecule!

Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and Uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Bucko and Champs


C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

From Boy up Broke to Streaky Maine

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Roll on Aussie Christmas day

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Grab the rellies call your mates

and have yourselves a ripper

little Aussie Christmas Day

 

Score the meat from Ronnie Kinsell's

A Ham from Poppy's delico

Get a bag of pre-cut coleslaw

Hit the drive through bottle Oh

Top the tank of barbie gas up

A monster bag of salted chips

get a box of daggy bon bons
A good French onion dip
 

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

From Boy up Broke to Streaky Maine

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Roll on Aussie Christmas day

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Grab the rellies call your mates

and have yourselves a ripper

little Aussie Christmas Day

 

Trim the lawn and do the edges

get the doggie an extra bone

wack a tarp between the gum trees

speakers on the patio

Bags of ice from Johnno's garage

scattered chairs around the yard

grab the neighbours crank the hi fi

knuckle down and party hard

 

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

From Boy up Broke to Streaky Maine

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Roll on Aussie Christmas day

C'mon it's an Aussie Christmas

Grab the rellies call your mates

and have yourselves a ripper

little Aussie Christmas Day

You've got to

have yourselves a ripper

little Aussie Christmas Day

Celebration cross the nation

Aussie Christmas Day

Christmas Day Australia Way

Angry Anderson

The winter wind is blowin' and I'm far away from home
When Christmas time is comin' and I'm feeling all alone
I dream of Margaret River on a summer's day
It's so beautiful at Byron Bay
Sydney Harbour and Adelaide
And a warm winds blowin' on a Whitsunday way
On walk-a-bout out Broken Hill way

It's Christmas Day Australia way
It's Christmas Day Australia way
Tassie island and Alice Springs
Or the Sunshine coast where the kookaburra sings
Gone to Darwin on a red dusty road
And the dreamtime desert is callin' me home
When the Fremantle doctor blows Scarborough way
It's Christmas Day Australia way
It's Christmas Day Australia way

And the cold breeze beatin' on window pane
The sighting of the day it's snowing out and rain
When I'm blown across the Northern Sea
It ain't my heart I'd rather be back home to say
(It's Christmas Day)
From Indian Ocean to the Coral Sea
Torquay, Bell's Beach, ACT
A woman down at Ballarat & Uluru
The Murray River Oh Kakadu
Stormy Cape, Coober Pedy, Birdsville, Canberra sure are neat
From a mountain trail to Arnham Land
Run a while the way you can
I've been away a long time seems like only yesterday
We were dancin' at St Kilda singin' Santa's on his way
I should be spending the day at Port Philip Bay
I'm dreamin' of Margaret River on a summer's day
It's so beautiful at Byron Bay
Sydney Harbour and Adelaide
And a warm winds blowin' on a Whitsunday way
On walk-a-bout out Broken Hill way
It's Christmas Day

Christmas In Australia

Brian Sutton © 2009

Santa comes but once a year
With lots of cheer and lots of beer
Where families get together for a while

By 4 oíclock my Uncle John
is naked in the billabong
and Aunty Joan is sittiní on Dadís knee.

Itís Christmas in Australia
With beer and prawns and Coolabah
Itís Christmas in Australia again

The eskyís full and the barbieís hot
And the familyís here theyíre a rowdy lot
Itís Christmas in Australia again.

So this holidays I thank the lord
As I strum this little Aussie chord
For the best inventions ever known to man

Itís a stubbie cooler in my hand
And an esky in the golden sand....
Itís Christmas in Australia again.

CHORUS

Now weíre running out of Christmas cheer
Thank God weíre running out of beer
ĎCos uncle John is passed out on the floor

Well thatís Christmas here down under
Thereís a sound of distant thunder...
Itís Christmas in Australia again again.

Christmas Lullaby

Mannheim Steamroller & Olivia Newton-Jones

 

Sleep tight little one

Christmas day is all over

Sleep tight my love

To this sweet lullaby

 

All the stars in the sky

Will keep watch over your heart

All the stars and I will keep watch over you

 

It's a night to believe

It's a night filled with wonder

It's a night filled with dreams

Christmas dreams you can make true

 

All the stars in the sky

Will keep watch over your heart

All the angels and I will keep watch over you


Sleep tight little one

Christmas day is all over

Your daddy and I will always love you

 

It's a night to believe

It's a night filled with wonder

It's a night filled with dreams

Christmas dreams you can make true

 

 

Sleep little one

Christmas day is all over

Your daddy and I will always love you

Christmas Photo

John Williamson

 

Oh it's December in Australia
Time to remember all the family
Christmas tree, native pine
Lights and tinsel, all entwined
Put a fairy on the top
There's Gran and Pa and Joan* and Pop
Ham and turkey's organised
Won't the grandkids be surprised?
When Santa comes in big black boots
In the back of Jacko's Ute

It's December in Australia
Time to remember all the family
Gather around for a photo
Hang on Less, where did Dad* go?
I gotta get everyone in the picture
I don't know where he's gone
Oh look here he is, come on Dad, hurry up!
Say Cheese, Cheese
Oh nope, mum's missing now
That'd be right

Oh yum, yum pig's bum, Christmas pudding
All the ladies do the cooking
All the men are really slack
Slappin' each other on the back
How ya goin' Tangles, how was your year?
Might rain tomorrow, have a cold beer.
I hear young Greg* is playin' fullback,
Guess he gets it all from you Jack,
Blah, blah, blah, blah.
Anyone up for a game of cricket?
Yeah

Oh it's December in Australia
Time to remember all the family
Gather around for a photo
Hang on Soph*, where did Garth* go?
I've got to get everyone in the picture
Oh OK, hang on I'll just go find him.
Garth, hurry up!
Oh he's just here, Garthy quick, come here!
Oh no hang on, now Scotty's missing
Oh Less, it's too hard
Let's just go play cricket, Yeah

Oh me not out, oh yes you are Nick
It's your ball, Max don't bowl too quick
Oh Nick has run off with the bat
After him across the flat
C'mon Cub you've had a bowl
Give the ball to Christie*
Oh Tom Tit, Pee-Wee, Brookie, Side Kick
You're on my side, grab the bat quick
Now he's run off with the stump
Better give that Nick a bump
Oh I think I'll just go have another Rum

Oh it's December in Australia
Time to remember all the family
Gather around for a photo
Oh hang on Less, where's Amo?
I gotta get everyone in the picture
I don't know where she is
I think she's already started eating
Nah, nah, here she comes, come on Amo
Hurry up, hurry up
Say cheese, Cheese
Oh no hang on, where's Brandy? Oh Adam!

Oh see the goanna up the gum tree
He's gonna get a feed today free
When the campers leave the lake
Bits of chook and choccy cake
It's Christmas time for him as well
See his big long belly swell

Oh it's December in Australia
Time to remember all the family
Gather around for a photo
Hang on Dad, where's Thomo?
I gotta get everyone in the picture
Well where is he?
Well I don't know!
Oh nah, here he is, come on Graham

Christmas Waltz

John Williamson

 

I don't want a thing for Christmas I already have your love
Just be here beside me in the summer surely that's more than enough
Come out on the porch hear them singing
I think I can hear Noel
Just feeling the spirit of Christmas on the night we remember well

There you were beneath the stars
My eyes could not believe
That was the night we feel in love
It was on Christmas Eve
Oh what a diamond memory
Oh what a crystal ball
You came to me like a valentine like the flickering candle light


So I don't want a thing for Christmas I already have your love
Just be here beside me in the summer surely that's more than enough
Come out on the porch hear them singing
I think I can hear Noel
Just feeling the spirit of Christmas on the night we remember well
Just feeling the spirit of Christmas on the night we remember well

Dinky Di Christmas

Barry Crocker

 

I want a dinky di Christmas

A down on the beach all cosy and warm

Or floatin' down The Murray, in no big hurry

Or out on Aunty Rozie's farm

Give me a dinky di Christmas

A southern cross up in the sky

May your esky never runs dry  & may Christmas be dinky di

 

Here we go

 

Now if your winter is a bummer you can change it into summer

in the southern hemisphere

and if you got something that's ailin' ya 

I recommend Australia, a lovely time of year

For our rellies special Christmas bring the children and the misses

and the sun shines every day

Well I hope that you're excited cause you're formally invited

to come and share our holiday

Cause if you like a dinky di Christmas

Australia's the only place to go

surfing in warm water with someone's daughter and

not freezin' in a snow

Give me a dinky di Christmas nowhere else will satisfy

May your esky never runs dry & may  Christmas be dinky di

 

 

Wack a prawn on the barbie

 

May your esky never runs dry & may Christmas be ....(Christmas be)

Give me a dinky di Christmas

A southern cross up in the sky

May your esky never runs dry  & may Christmas be dinky di

I love you darlin'

Happy Christmas From the Outback

Smokey Dawson

When you're living in the outback and December rolls around

You start getting sentimental about those Christmases in town

How you used to spend your holidays with friends and family

I can tell you blokes out here it just ain't like it used to be.

 

We're betting Christmas Day the temperature'll top forty in the shade

the bosses truck broke down in town and no one out here's getting paid

And it looks like meat pie gonna be our tucker Christmas day

cause a dingo took the roast beef and the rooster flew away

So

Happy Christmas from the outback

Happy Christmas from out here

Though we have our limitation

We're still full of Christmas cheer

We just brush away the flies wipe the sand out of our eyes

Eat the same old fly-blown pies

And drink a bucket full of beer

 

You may think that I'm complaining but it isn't what I mean

Cause I really love the outback  though it isn't very green

And I wouldn't dream of leaving here and moving far away

There's no place that I'd  rather be

Than here on Christmas Day

So

Happy Christmas from the outback

Merry Christmas from out here

Though we have our limitation

We're still full of Christmas cheer

We just brush away the flies wipe the sand out of our eyes

Eat the same old fly-blown pies

And drink a bucket full of beer

So

Happy Christmas from the outback

Happy Christmas from out here

Though we have our limitation

We're still full of Christmas cheer

We just brush away the flies wipe the sand out of our eyes

Eat the same old fly-blown pies

And drink a bucket full of beer

 

Happy Christmas from the outback

Happy Christmas from out here

Though we have our limitation

We're still full of Christmas cheer

We just brush away the flies wipe the sand out of our eyes

Eat the same old fly-blown pies

And drink a bucket full of beer

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

The Seekers

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Jingle Bells

The Seekers

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upset

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride

Little Saint Nick

Ol' 55

Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year
Oooooooo oooooooo


Well, way up North where the air gets cold
There's a tale about Christmas that you've all been told
And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
And he spends the whole year workin' out on his sled.


It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick
It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick


Just a little bobsled, we call it Old Saint Nick
But she'll walk a tobogan with a four speed stick
She's candy apple red with a ski for a wheel
And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel.


It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick
It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick

run run reindeer

run run reindeer
Woooooo
run run reindeer

run run reindeer
You donít miss no-one!

He's hauling through the snow at a frightenin' speed,
With a half a dozen deer with a-Rudy to lead,
He's gotta wear his goggles 'cause the snow really flies
And he's cruisin' every pad with a little surprise.


It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick
It's the little Saint Nick
Oo little Saint Nick



Ooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year
Ooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year
Aaaaaaaa
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year

Jingle Jangle ( Bells Mix )

The Bee Gees

 

 

 

 

Jingle jangle , my love wears silvery bangles
She likes to wander and that's why I'm under
the spell of her jingle jangle

We used to cry on each others shoulder
Now that I'm older , she wanders ahead
Now that she's found love , I still hear the sound of
silvery bangles , remain in my head

Jingle jangle , my love wears silvery bangles
She used to wander and that's why I'm under
the spell of her jingle jangle

mmm..... (fade)

Last Christmas

Human Nature/ Savage Garden

 


Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognise me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

Chorus

(Oooh. Oooh Baby)

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My God I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Oooh Oooh
Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

Chorus

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
(Gave you my heart)
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Next year
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
special
someone
someone
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
who'll give me something in return
I'll give it to someone
hold my heart and watch it burn
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day
I thought you were someone special
gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone
last Christmas I gave you my heart
you gave it away
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone

I Want A Rockin' Christmas

OL' 55

The Christmas tree is standing and the tinsel's hanging down

But I'm not celebrating till you get back in town.

 

 

Parties are raging oh so late in the night

So what am I doing here alone on Christmas night

Why did we have to part we were so close at heart

When will December change her mind

 

I want a rockin' Christmas with my lonely lady so far far away

Just one rockin' Christmas with my pretty baby

she's a warm memory, memory

 

Listen to me Santa won't you bring my lover to me

Wrapped up in ribbons and dropped down my chimney

I know I'm much too old

for reindeer bells and gold

But tonight answer[?] in the sky

 

I want a rockin' Christmas with my lonely lady

She's so far  far away

Just one rockin' Christmas with my pretty baby

She's a warm memory, memory

 

[Silent night Holy

Silent night Holy hark the angels sings

Holy Christmas

Hallelujah sleep in heavenly

 Merry Christmas night]

 

Merry merry Christmas

Merry merry Christmas

Merry merry Christmas

Merry merry Christmas

 

Merry merry Christmas to you

 

I want a rockin' Christmas with my lonely lady

She's so far far away

[Merry merry Christmas

Merry merry Christmas ]

Just one rockin' Christmas with my pretty baby

She's a warm memory, memory

I want a rockin' Christmas with my lonely lady

She's so far far away

Just one rockin' Christmas with my pretty baby

She's a warm memory, memory

The Carol of The Birds

John Wheeler

Out on the plains the brolgas are dancing
Lifting their feet like warhorses prancing
Up to the sun the woodlarks go winging
Faint in the dawn light echoes their singing
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day

Down where the tree ferns grow by the river
There where the waters sparkle and quiver
Deep in the gullies bell-birds are chiming
Softly and sweetly their lyric notes rhyming
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

Friar birds sip the nectar of flowers
Currawongs chant in wattle tree bowers
In the blue ranges lorikeets calling
Carols of bush birds are rising and falling
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day

Down where the tree ferns grow by the river
There where the waters sparkle and quiver
Deep in the gullies bell-birds are chiming
Softly and sweetly their lyric notes rhyming
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

Friar birds sip the nectar of flowers
Currawongs chant in wattle tree bowers
In the blue ranges lorikeets calling
Carols of bush birds are rising and falling

Out on the plains the brolgas are dancing
Lifting their feet like warhorses prancing
Up to the sun the woodlarks go winging
Faint in the dawn light echoes their singing
Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day

Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

Orana! Orana! Orana to Christmas Day.

Christmas where the gum trees grow

 

Christmas where the gum trees grow
There is no frost and there is no snow
Christmas in Australia's hot
Cold and frosty is what its not
When the bloom of the Jacaranda tree is here
Christmas time is near

From England came our Christmas fare
They even said what Santa should wear
But here down under for summers cool
Santa should dip in a swimming pool

Christmas where the gum trees grow
There is no frost and there is no snow
Christmas in Australia's hot
Cold and frosty is what its not
When the bloom of the Jacaranda tree is here
Christmas time is near

Santa rides in a sleigh on snow
But down here where the gum trees grow
Santa should wear some water ski's
And glide around Australia with ease

Christmas where the gum trees grow
There is no frost and there is no snow
Christmas in Australia's hot
Cold and frosty is what its not
When the bloom of the Jacaranda tree is here
Christmas time is near

To ride around the bush where its dry
To cart all the presents piled so high
A red nosed reindeer would never do
Santa should jump on a kangaroo

Christmas where the gum trees grow
There is no frost and there is no snow
Christmas in Australia's hot
Cold and frosty is what its not
When the bloom of the Jacaranda tree is here
Christmas time is near

Christmas in the Alice

Christmas in the Alice is like no other place I know
Santa doesn't like it much 'cause there isn't any snow
His reindeer get all grumpy as the waterholes go dry
For when it's stinkin' hot down here its bloody hard to fly

Dressed up like a polar bear isn't very wise
His nose gets even redder and the sweat runs in his eyes
Once he nearly missed us and his nose began to freak
By the time he turned the whole thing 'round, he'd got to Tennant Creek

He always seems to make it and he's full of Christmas cheer
For when he's finally landed he's guaranteed a beer
He leaves behind his presents with a cheery ho ho smile
Then they pour him back upon his sled and off he roars in style

Now someone once asked him if he'd ever lived in fear
Of ever being caught one day drunk in charge of deer
He gave a little chuckle with a twinkle in his eye
You may have cops with bags down here but none of them can fly

And then there was this rumour, or so I've heard it said
He once used six white boomers to pull along his sled
He thought it was a good idea while travelling in the bush
But they hopped of in the scrub one day and left him there to push

So if you should spend Christmas out in Alice Springs
Be very well prepared mate for some bloody funny things
Big fat men in polar suits screaming across the sky
And sweaty grumpy reindeers complaining as they fly

Through all the dust the flies the heat and every thing it brings
Carrying all the pressies out back to Alice Springs
I told to you this story 'cause I thought you all should know
Santa doesn't like it much 'cause there isn't any snow
