Aussie Christmas Songs

Aussie Jingle Bells

Dashing through the bush,
in a rusty Holden Ute,
Kicking up the dust,
esky in the boot,
Kelpie by my side,
singing Christmas songs,
It’s 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 summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Engine’s getting hot;
we dodge the kangaroos,
The swaggie climbs aboard,
he is welcome too.
All the family’s there,
sitting by the pool,
Christmas Day the Aussie way,
by the barbecue.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia
on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

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 the family snap,
Pack the car and all shoot through,
before the washing up.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia
on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.



Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas

Wayne says nothing else will do,
You can keep all your phones with their multiple tones,
Your Nikes and play-stations too,
Cos Wayne’s had visions of riding
Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas

Out on an ocean of blue
So Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas
And only a surfboard will do

Wayne’s been a good boy since Easter,
when the subject of surfboards came up
And Dad suggested “behavioural improvements”
that might reflect on his luck
Now, he doesn’t backchat his mother,
And he does all his homework on cue –
Since Wayne wants a surfboard for Christmas
It’s like living with somebody new!

Wayne claims he’s outgrown his boogie-board,
Although he admits it’s been fun
‘Cos he’s done all the flips and the skips and the tricks
And mastered them every one
Now Wayne wants to cruise with the big boys,
He says there are girls out there too
Yeah Wayne wants a surfboard this Christmas
He’s grown up so fast it’s not true


Deck the Sheds ( sung to the tune of Deck the Halls)

Deck the sheds with bits of wattle, fa la la la la la la la la
Whack some gum leaves in a bottle, fa la la la la la la la la
All the shops are open sundies, fa la la la la la la la la
Buy your Dad some sox and undies, fa la la la la la la la la
Deck the sheds with bits of gumtree, fa la la la la la la la la

Hang some deco’s off the plum tree, fa la la la la la la la la
Plant some kisses on the missus, fa la la la la la la la la
Have a ripper Aussie Christmas, fa la la la la la la la la
Say g’day to friends and relies, fa la la la la la la la la
Wave them off with bulging bellies, fa la la la la la la la la

Kids and babies youngies oldies, fa la la la la la la la la
May your fridge be full of coldies, fa la la la la la la la la
Chop the wood and stoke the barbie, fa la la la la la la la la
Ring the folks in Abudabe, fa la la la la la la la la
Pop the stuffing in the turkey, fa la la la la la la la la

Little Mary’s feeling ercky, fa la la la la la la la la
Rally rally round the table, fa la la la la la la la la
Fill your belly while your able, fa la la la la la la la la
Joyce and Joany, Dave and Daryl, fa la la la la la la la la
Sing an Aussie Christmas Carol, fa la la la la la la la la
