Well I'm fair dinkum, bloody oath I am
I've loved the smell of gum leaves since I was in a pram
Some places might be greener but I don't give a damn
'Cause I'm fair dinkum, bloody oath I am - wonderful
Now I was in the doctors just the other day
He told me take an asprin, the pain would go away
So I pulled out my cheque book, 'cause sickness doesn't pay
I said are you fair dinkum - what did the doctor say
He said, ah-sore, I'm fair dinkum, bloody oath I am
I've loved the smell of gum leaves since I was in a plam
Some places might be gleener but I don't give a damn
'Cause I'm fair dinkum, ah-sore, bloody oath I am
(You see, we met him in a nice little chinese restaurant)
Then I whistled down a taxi-cab and headed for the east
A bad case of munchies, I was ready for a feast
The driver said Indian, I said ah well, I'd rather not
He said why don't you cummaround to my place, my curry's rather hot
I said are you fair dinkum
He said, oh I'm fair dinkum, bloody oath I am
I love the smell of gum leaves since I was in a bram
Some places might be greener but I don't give a damn
'Cause I'm fair dinkum, oh-oh-oh bloody oath I am
Well I tipped the nice cabby so he wouldn't make a fuss
I shot out like a bullet and I grabbed the Bondi bus
I said take me to the waves mate, I'm dyin' for a dip
He said nah, you be ver carful, and watch you don't slip
Are you fair dinkum
He said ah, by gum, I'm fair dinkum, bloody oath I arm
Ive luvved the smell of gum leaves since I was in a brarm
Some places might be greener but I don't give a darm
'Cause I'm fair dinkum, aye, bloody oath I am
Well everybody's claimin' Aust
