Tasmania Song

 

 

2001-2002 - Australia / New Zealand / Fiji / Papua New Guinea 8/21/01 - 2/27/02

 

To the tune of Barry Manilow’s Copacabana  

 

 

His name is Stephen, he drives a tour bus,

He tells us stories and he shares,

Cause he really, really cares,

He educates us, about his country,

Hoping that we really learn, and he always has a turn,

 

We just take off and go,

He drives on like a pro,

He plays his music so we sleep,

So nobody makes a peep,

 

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

We love it well, why just because,

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

Music & laughter and following after,

On the tour bus…..

 

Don’t go to slee sleep,

We have one more riddle..

 

Duh duh da da

 

With only 3 days, to know each other,

With 8 nationalities,

It can be so hard to please,

We have an Aussie, and 4 from England,

We have 2 Germans and a Dutch,

3 Japanese and 2 U.S.,

With 5 from Switzerland,

And then 1 Austrian,

With all the cultures it was fun,

And today we’re done,  

 

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

We love it cause Stephen takes care of us,

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

Music & laughter and following after,

On the tour bus…..

 

We had to pee pee,

But where is the toilet?

 

Duh duh da da

 

Hiking & walking,

Through the rainforests,

Going swimming on the beach,

Mountains we tried so hard to reach,

Then there were wombats, for us to cuddle,

How exciting yes it was, to see our first real tassie devil,

 

We really were a team, cooking and ready to clean,

I’ve enjoyed it hoped you did too,

Cause now I feel so blue.

 

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

We love it well, why just because,

On the adventure, adventure tour bus,

Music & laughter and following after,

On the tour bus…..

Hope you all have…

Safe travel adventures..

Duh duh da da
