A packed lunch required

I like to go out driving

In what Australian’s call a forest

It’s scragy and it’s scruffy

Clumped grass and stringy barks.

Our forest is on a dam edge

And some mornings it looks quite nice

But in the heat of an Australian summer

Or at the end of a long dry winter

Our bush is not that glamourous

It’s a dry and crackly fire risk

Or a wet and muddy path

We have a joke out here in Oz

About our Kangaroos

And the clumpy grasses that struggle to grow

Underneath our tall gum trees

We often say as we are driving past

A wallaby would have to take a packed lunch

To live in that bush or to even just pass through.
