Early on one Christmas day
A joey kangaroo was far from home and lost
in a great, big zoo

Mommy….where’s my mommy?
They’ve taken her away

We’ll help you find your mommy, son
Hop up on the sleigh

So up inside the bag of toys little Joey hopped
But they hadn’t gone far when Santa stopped
Unharnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky

(boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom)

Six white boomers
Snow white boomers
Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers
Snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur-lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey feelin’ quite okay
While those old man kangaroos kept pullin’ on the sleigh


Then Joey said to Santa, “Santa, what about the toys?
Aren’t you giving some to these girls and boys?”

“Well, they’ve all had their presents, sonny
We were here last night
This trip is an extra trip
Joey’s special flight


Soon the sleigh was flashing past
Right over marble bah
“Slow down there!” cried Santa
“It can’t be far
Hop up on my lap here, son and have a look around”
“There, there she is!
that’s mommy! bounding up and down!”


Well, that’s the bestest Christmas treat that Joey ever had
Curled up in mother’s pouch feeling snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa heading northwards from the sun
The only year the boomers worked a double run
