Home Among the Gum Trees

★ Home Among the Gum Trees Lyrics:

I’ve been around the world
A couple of times, or maybe more,
I’ve seen the sights, I’ve had delights
On ev’ery foreign shore,
But when my friends all ask me
The place that I adore,
I tell them right away.

Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees,
A sheep or two, a kangaroo.
A clothesline out the back,
Veranda out the front
And an old rocking chair.

You can see me in the kitchen
Cooking up a roast,
Or vegemite on toast,
Just you and me, a cup of tea.
Later on, we’ll settle down,
And mull up on the porch
And watch the possums play.

There’s a Safeway on the corner
And a Woolworths down the street,
And a New World’s just been opened
Where they regulate the heat,
But I’d trade them all tomorrow
For the simple bush retreat
Where the kookaburras call.

Some people like their houses
With fences all around,
Others live in mansions,
And some beneath the ground,
But me, I like the bush, you know,
With rabbits running round
And a pumpkin vine out the back.
