Crocodile Hunter-loving husband of Terri

If the crocodiles are crying
Then, so are you and I
The love we saw of the Steve so loved
Will never ever die

Steve showed us how to strive
As warriors for our world
For a better place for all God made
A truer place for all

From the outback here, to Hollywood
Steve did it rough, but real
The world admires you Steve, so much
For saving all we steal

His heart was home most everywhere
Not, just among the gumtrees
But, in helping every creature
In their own land, be free

The koalas play, the crocs can swim
From the courage of one man
To change the world, to teach the truth
The balance of our land

Fair dinkum Steve, you lived a life
With grit, you lived it full
The mission done, your job complete
Into your heart, the world you pulled

We dig it now, just what is right
To listen to their call
Hey true blue, by crikey mate
There's some Irwin in us all

You didn't really go away
Your passion's here to stay
Terri, Bob and Bindi sweet
Will keep it here to stay

Lyrics
Home Among The Gumtrees
by W. Johnson and B. Brown

I've been around the world a dozen times, or maybe more,
I've seen the sights and had delights on every foreign shore,
But when my friends all ask me the place that I adore,
I tell them right away.
Give me a home among the gumtrees, with lots of plum trees,
A sheep or two, a kangaroo, a clothesline out the back,
Verandah out the front and an old rocking chair.
