Early on one Christmas Day a Joey Kangaroo
Was far from home and lost in a great big zoo
Mummy, where’s my mummy? They’ve taken her away
We’ll help you find your mummy, son, hop up on the sleigh

Up beside the bag of toys little Joey hopped
But they hadn’t gone far when Santa stopped
Unharnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky

Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers\
On his Australian run

Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey, feeling quite okay
While those old man kangaroos kept pulling on the sleigh

Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Joey said to Santa, “Santa, what about the toys?
Aren’t you giving some to these girls and boys?”
They’ve got all their presents, son, we were here last night
This trip is an extra trip, Joey’s special flight

Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Soon the sleigh was flashing past right over Marble Bar
“Slow down there”, cried Santa, “It can’t be far”
Come up on my lap here, son, and have a look around
There she is, that’s mummy, bounding up and down

Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Well, that’s the bestest Christmas treat that Joey ever had
Curled up in mother’s pouch feeling snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa heading northwards from the sun
The only year the boomers worked a double run

Six white boomers, snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers, snow white boomers
On his Australian run  images-10
