about

Considered a traditional Australian song, was actually written for a musical in England!

lyrics

Farewell to old England Forever. Farewell to my rumskulls as well. Farewell to the well known Old Bailey. Where I used for to have such a swell.

Singing toorali-oorali adiity. Singing toorali oorali-ay. Toorali-oorali adiity. We're bound for Botany Bay.

Taint leavin old England we cares about. Taint cause we misspells what we knows. And just because all you light fingered gentry, ops around with a log on your toes.

Singing toorali-oorali adiity. Singing toorali oorali-ay. Toorali-oorali adiity. We're bound for Botany Bay.

Singing toorali-oorali adiity. Toorali oorali-ay. Toorali-oorali adiity. We're bound for Botany Bay.

So take warning.
If I had the wings of a turtle dove. I'd soar on my pinions so high. Slap bang into the arms of my honey love and in her sweet presence I'd die.

Toorali-oorali adiity. Toorali oorali-ay. Toorali-oorali adiity. We're bound for Botany Bay.
