Deck the Sheds
Firstly an explanation of some of the Australian words:-
  • Wattle - An Australian tree with yellow flowers
  • ripper - Good
  • g'day - Hello
  • Abudabe - A distant country
  • ercky - Not very well
Now we are ready to start singing 'Deck the Sheds' to the tune of 'Deck the Halls'.
