(feat. The Wilcannia Mob)

First of all I wanna say I don't even know why you act that way
My name is maya and people always say
I act kinda strange like a dooba weh
I like fish and mango pickle
When I climb trees
Them feet them tickle
I'm broke this month didn't pay rent
I had to jump town and my money's all spent [2x]

Rode the bmx we walked through the bush
The boys fight to ride it, but I just let em push
Keith stole an egg from a lil kookoo
Kept it safe in his mouth, while he danced the jookoo jookoo

There's only one ocean that got fish left
One day we'll have to be a really good chef
And I don't mean us in the bush making meth
Boys if you catch meth you catch your death
When I said that Keith sneezed and had a chick
Broke the little egg in his mouth in little bits

When it's hot we go down the river and swim
When we go fishing we 're catching a brim
When the rivers high we jump off the bridge
And then we go home and play some didge

    Look at the production of this song... Mia discovers what was a novelty song by a bunch of 10 year aboriginal kids in new south wales, australia. She integrates it into her global musical project. But the message stays the same: the beat, the music, self-expression, trying to stay sane in an insane world, staying free of addiction, pushing for a better world

    This song is bout how to spend hot summer days by a river. Suggesting that riding bikes, fishing, climing trees, aborting fetal birds, and even playing the didgeridoo, are far superior to making meth which will eventually lead to your death.
