From the team that brought you Sir Robert Menzies!! : D

The adventures of Barry McKenzie
Dinky di tales of the true blue boy
Fresh from the shores of the antipodes
Wafting the scent of the eucalypt trees
If you want to get your sister in a frenzy
Introduce her to Barry McKenzie

He's got a great big grin and a great big chin
Give him half a chance, he'll be in like Flynn
His great big fist will flatten any Pom
He's got a great big thirst you can do your worst
When they tap McKenzie he'll be in their first
It's no use mate you'll never win
He's a better man than you are Gunga Din

Barry ... Barry ... Barry ...

The adventures of Barry McKenzie
Dinky di tales of a bonza boy
Lonely and lost in the land of the Pom
Wishing to hell he was where he was from
From the team that brought you Sir Robert Menzies
The adventures of Barry McKenzie

He's got a big brown hat and an Earl's Court flat
And a map to show the Poms where Bondi's at
And he rushes in where angels fear to go
He can sink a beer, he can flick a queer
In his latest Aussie double breasted gear
He's a handsome wild colonial man
He can beat the bloody world
if Genghis Khan

Barry ... Barry ... Barry ... McKenzie

The adventures of Barry McKenzie
Dinky di tales of a true blue boy
Fresh from the shores of the antipodes
Wafting the scent of the eucalypt trees
From the land that's got the whole world green with envy
The adventures of Barry McKenzie.

Barry ... Barry ... Barry ... McKenzie


The 1972 theme tune to Adventures of Barry McKenzie
