Hello stripeyhoss, you seem to know a lot about tying kangaroos down, you're not Australian are you ?waveysmiley

I think the verses of the song are intended to refer to silliness.

"Tie me [my] kangaroo down" is silly, because wild kangaroos won't abide being tied down, or on a leash--they run away fast, and they are strong.

Another verse:
"Watch me wallaby's feed, mate, watch me wallaby's feed.
They're a dangerous breed, mate, so watch me wallaby's feed."

A wallaby eats grass at night, I've read, so their feed needs no watching (the grass is not going to run away, and is plentiful in normal circumstances). I'm told they are not dangerous, but rather are small, and their main defence is to run away.

One of the other verses refers to a friend as "Blue," the clever Australian nickname for a person whose hair is red (not blue, get it? :jester) :jester) :jester))

If it wasnae for your wellies, where would you be?
You'd be in the hospital or infirmary,
Cause you would have a dose of the flu or even pleurisy,
If you didnae have your sheep feet in your wellies!

Bringing in the sheep
Bringing in the sheep
We shall come rejoicing
Bringing in the sheep

I'm not too sure whether we've got any Welsh members, but even if we have they're, most likely, too busy ' tending ' the sheep. :o

Maybe the Welsh members can shed some light...?

What these song lyrics really refer to : -

Tie me kangaroo down sport,
tie me kangaroo down.
Tie me kangaroo down sport,
tie me kangaroo down.

Now I know that it must be lonely for a bloke in the Australian outback, but .........
