Why don't you get out of it with me
I hope there's nothing wrong
In the way I turn on in your company
I hope you don't mind that I'm off my face over you
'Cause if you turn me away I don't know what I'd do
Oh Billabong (do-do-do-do-do)
Billabong (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Plenty bamboo (didly-didly-didly...), a little water
Take a big deep breath (do-do-do-do-do)
And away we go (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
In a big canoo (didly-didly-didly...), up the river
There's something about the way you walk on by
It's the walk in your wiggle
Or the wiggle in your walk that caught my eye
I never forgot the day you said goodbye
Don't you think maybe it's worth another try
Oh Billabong (do-do-do-do-do)
Billabong (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Plenty bamboo (didly-didly-didly...), a little water
Take a big deep breath (do-do-do-do-do)
And away we go (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
In a big canoo (didly-didly-didly...), up the river
I got rum in the fridge and a couple of jay-jay pails
A breeze comes through here every night, it never fails
We're two lonely people on nowhere trails
Maybe we'll get our wheels back on the rails
Oh Billabong (do-do-do-do-do)
Billabong (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Plenty bamboo (didly-didly-didly...), a little water
Take a big deep breath (do-do-do-do-do)
And away we go (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
In a big canoo (didly-didly-didly...), up the river
One more time -
Oh Billabong (do-do-do-do-do)
Billabong (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Plenty bamboo (didly-didly-didly...), a little water
Take a big deep breath (do-do-do-do-do)
And away we go (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
In a big canoo (didly-didly-didly...), up the river
In a big canoo (didly-didly-didly...), up
