We drove from Melbourne to Sydney
on a road that cut through the bush.
We found gum trees a plenty
and we weren’t in much of a rush.
Driving through the rural country
on our way we found
a yellow kangaroo crossing sign
and out they jumped with a bound.
They hopped across the street
without any care in the world.
The horns honked, the cars swerved
but the roos were caught unaware.
If you’ve ever driven on the roads down under
you’ll surely know what I mean.
A typical day of kangaroo blunder
is a common sight to be seen.
