Let me tell you of an interview with an old man emu
He’s got a beak and feathers and things
But the poor old fella ain’t got no wings
Aren’t you jealous of the wedge tail eagle oom ba da little da da da

Well the eagle’s flying round and round, I keep my two feet firmly on the ground
Now I can’t fly but I’m telling you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo
Ba da doo doo da doo doo doo doo doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly but I’m telling you he can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well he was the model for the fifty cents oom ba da little da da da
The designer should’ve had more sense oom ba da little da da da
If ya take a look it’ll prove to you ha ha ha I run the pants off a kangaroo
Ba da doo doo da doo doo doo doo doot doo doo doo
Take a look it’ll prove to you he can run the pants off a kangaroo

You can’t loop the loop like a cockatoo oom ba da little da da da
Swoop and toss like an albatross oom ba da little da da da
Ya silly galah I’m better by far than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar
They squeak and squawk and try to talk, why me and them’s like cheese and chalk
Ba da doo doo da doo doo doo doo doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly but I’m telling you he can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well a dingo came around one day oom ba da little da da da
“Hey there emu, you wanna play?” oom ba da little da da da
But the emu was too smart for him ha cha ah ha cha ah ha ah ha ah ha
Walked right up and kicked him in the shin
Ba da doo doo da doo doo doo doo doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly but I’m telling you he can run the pants off a dingo too

Well the last time I saw old man emu oom ba da little da da d a
He was chasing a female he knew oom ba da little da da da
As he shot past I heard him say ha cha ah ha cha ah ha ah ha ah ha
She can’t fly but I’m telling you she can run the pants off a kangaroo
Ba da doo doo da doo doo doo doo doot doo doo doo
She can’t fly but I’m telling you she can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well there is a moral to this ditty oom ba da little da da da
Thrush can sing but he aint pretty oom ba da little da da da
Duck can swim but he can’t sing nor can the eagle on the wing
Emu can’t fly but I’m telling you he can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well the kookaburra laughed and he said it’s true oom ba da little da da da
Ah ha ha ha h a ha hoo he can run the pants off a kangaroo
Ooh hoo ha ha ha ooh hoo ha ha ha
