30.  ALICE SPRINGS, WE SINGS AND THE WALLAROO SYMBS

‘Come along off the path,’ advised Alice, ‘you all look plum pole-axed piqued out. The ghangiant could be along soon, and you don’t want to be around when it turns up.’

I didn’t like the sound of the ghangiant, and thought we’d had enough drama for one day. I checked the hat, and it was glowing, so we followed Alice:

Spring, spring, spring
we span,
springing sprightly we sprang.

Alice Springs Invites us to Sing

We reached a spring, and Alice took a drink. She invited us to quench our thirst too, ‘Come drink at this spring, it’ll make you sing.’ I checked the hat, and it was glowing, so I told the others it should be okay.

The water sure did taste sweet, and the next thing we knew, Bonzo was singing Have a Drink on Me. Elle then started singing Waltzing Matilda , (the Andre Roo and Mirusia version) before Warren Zevon‘s Werewolves of London must have cornered my cerebral cortex (nailed my noggin), because a rousing rendition suddenly burst out of my mouth. Alice finished off our medley with The Jam’s A Town Called Malice.

‘Why, Alice, I haven’t heard such sweet singing since Sade stopped by the Springs,’ a voice said from behind us. I looked around to see a macropod approaching.

‘Hello Wally Mac,’ exclaimed Alice, ‘what brings a wallaroo like roo to these parts.’
