Australias Deadliest Animals

Song Author Jason Farnham Lyrics by: Christiaan Van Vuuren Performer: Christiaan Van Vuuren Submitted by: gilsi
In [C]Australia we've got deadly [E]animals a plenty.
We've got [F]funnel web spiders who'll murder you and your family.
[C]Under every second rock is a [E]red back spider.
And they’ll [F]kill ya just cause, I dunno, they're bored or whatever.

We [C]got invisible brown snakes who'll [E]bite you on the foot,
And you’ll be [F]dead in seven minutes, like that, kaput.
We've got [C]the world's deadliest creatures all [E]over the place.
We've got [F]magpies who'll steal the eyeballs from your face -

But at [Am]least we don't have [G]AR-1[F]5's.

We've got [C]great white sharks who'll a[E]scend from the deep,
And [F]rip ya in half with their razor sharp teeth.
We've got [C]salt water crocs who'll death-[E]roll you to death,
and [F]sea-snakes who'll gladly snatch your last breath.

We've got a [C]blue ringed octopus no [E]bigger than this,
that just [F]sits around in rock pools waiting to kill kids.
And [C]even the platypus, a cute [E]beaver-duck thing,
has got a [F]spur on it’s ankle that’ll kill ya in one sting.

But at [Am]least we don't have [G]AR-1[F]5's.
And at [Am]least they can't end [G]up  
in the hands of [F]psychopathic teens.

We've got [C]stonefish and stingrays and [E]sea-urchins and shit,
and [F]hectic fucken homicidal box jellyfish,
and [C]these Jellyfish they aren’t even [E]sentient beings,
they don’t [F]even really do stuff or know about things.

They just [C]float around on the [E]whim of the currents,
being [F]pointless non-cognitive murderous cunts.
And [C]if that weren't enough in terms of [E]natural hazards,
[F]here in Australia the sun causes cancer.

But at [Am]least we don't have [G]AR-1[F]5's.
And at [Am]least they can't end [G]up  
in the hands of [F]suicidal teens.

And at [C]least we don't have an [F]NRA,
who pay [F]millions of dollars every day,
[C]buying off politicians [E]not to change [F]old laws.

We got [C]bull sharks, cone shells, [E]salt water crocodiles.
[F]Honey bees, european wasps, and blue ringed octopi's.
[C]Death adders, blue bottles, [E]red back spiders.
[F]Tiger sharks, tiger snakes, and lizards that'll bite ya.

We got [C]Sea snakes, taipans, [E]cassowaries, copperheads,
[F]all the creatures of the land and sky and sea that want you dead.
[C]Toadfish, stonefish, [E]irukandgi jellyfish -
[F]Bull ants, centipedes, and ticks that cause paralysis.

But thank [Am]fuck we don't have [G]AR-1[F]5's.
And thank [Am]fuck they can't end [G]up  
in the hands psycho[F]pathic suicidal teens.
And thank [C]fuck we don't have an [E]NRA  
who pay [F]millions of dollars every day,
[C]buying off politicians [E]not to change some [F]law.

A [C]law that was written [E]200 years a[F]go,  
in a [C]time when it took three [E]minutes to re[F]load,
a [Am]single round of [G]ammunition,
and [F]we knew nothing about depression,
and you [Am]couldn't fire 45 [G]rounds in sixty [F]seconds.

And there [C]wasn't even such a [E]thing as automatic [F]weapons.
And there [C]weren't thirty [E]one mass-shootings [F]monthly…
but [C]what would I know cause I'm from another country.

In Australia we've got deadly animals a plenty.
We've got funnel web spiders who'll murder you and your family.
Under every second rock is a red back spider.
And they’ll kill ya just cause, I dunno, they're bored or whatever.

We got invisible brown snakes who'll bite you on the foot,
And you’ll be dead in seven minutes, like that, kaput.
We've got the world's deadliest creatures all over the place.
We've got magpies who'll steal the eyeballs from your face -

But at least we don't have AR-15's.

We've got great white sharks who'll ascend from the deep,
And rip ya in half with their razor sharp teeth.
We've got salt water crocs who'll death-roll you to death,
and sea-snakes who'll gladly snatch your last breath.

We've got a blue ringed octopus no bigger than this,
that just sits around in rock pools waiting to kill kids.
And even the platypus, a cute beaver-duck thing,
has got a spur on it’s ankle that’ll kill ya in one sting.

But at least we don't have AR-15's.
And at least they can't end up
in the hands of psychopathic teens.

We've got stonefish and stingrays and sea-urchins and shit,
and hectic fucken homicidal box jellyfish,
and these Jellyfish they aren’t even sentient beings,
they don’t even really do stuff or know about things.

They just float around on the whim of the currents,
being pointless non-cognitive murderous cunts.
And if that weren't enough in terms of natural hazards,
here in Australia the sun causes cancer.

But at least we don't have AR-15's.
And at least they can't end up
in the hands of suicidal teens.

And at least we don't have an NRA,
who pay millions of dollars every day,
buying off politicians not to change old laws.

We got bull sharks, cone shells, salt water crocodiles.
Honey bees, european wasps, and blue ringed octopi's.
Death adders, blue bottles, red back spiders.
Tiger sharks, tiger snakes, and lizards that'll bite ya.

We got Sea snakes, taipans, cassowaries, copperheads,
all the creatures of the land and sky and sea that want you dead.
Toadfish, stonefish, irukandgi jellyfish -
Bull ants, centipedes, and ticks that cause paralysis.

But thank fuck we don't have AR-15's.
And thank fuck they can't end up
in the hands psychopathic suicidal teens.
And thank fuck we don't have an NRA
who pay millions of dollars every day,
buying off politicians not to change some law.

A law that was written 200 years ago,
in a time when it took three minutes to reload,
a single round of ammunition,
and we knew nothing about depression,
and you couldn't fire 45 rounds in sixty seconds.

And there wasn't even such a thing as automatic weapons.
And there weren't thirty one mass-shootings monthly…
but what would I know cause I'm from another country.
