Would it be too unacceptable
To beep 'gidday' as we drive by
Cause I heard it was against the law,
But I know they still do it
in the country more
For they certainly wave to all,
As everybody's ya friend out there
Ah, give me those country folk with friendly care.
If we were eskimos we'd be into
Is nice for the warmth, if not for the toes.
Then some give a kiss on both cheeks
That's sure nicer than kissing the feet.
There's nods and winks and shrugs
Aloha and shalom or ciao
Or a Chinese gentle bow
And in Latin America a hug is abrazo.
So what shall we have,
a bit of this and that
But hey, lets get on with it shall we,
For "Hello dear chum"
I'm ready now for a really good chat.
