How many kinds of sweet flowers show
In an Aussie Stamp Album?
We'll tell you now of some that we know
Those we miss you'll surely pardon
Daffodils, heart's ease and phlox
Meadowsweet and lady smocks
Gentian, lupin and tall hollyhocks
Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots
In an Aussie Stamp Album

How many insects come here and show
In an Aussie Stamp Album?
We'll tell you now of some that we know
Those we miss you'll surely pardon
Fireflies, moths and bees
Spiders climbing in the trees
Butterflies drift in the gentle breeze
There are snakes, ants that sting
And other creeping things
In an Aussie Stamp Album

How many songbirds fly to and fro
In an Aussie Stamp Album?
We'll tell you now of some that we know
Those we miss you'll surely pardon
Bobolink, cuckoo and quail
Tanager and cardinal
Bluebird, lark, thrush and nightingale
There is joy in the spring
When the birds begin to sing
In an Aussie Stamp Album

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
 Under the shade of a coolibah tree
 And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled

You know that? Course you do!
Sung that on our last years aussie stamp-club anual meeting.:-)

Great! Peter,
I wish I was a fly on the wall for that one.
Try a Youtube with Tina Arena singing it, it's a killer.
