Kids in pyjamas line the street
Wearing cotton to beat the heat
We hear the sound of the fire truck’s blast
Expectant families all wait on the grass
Every year just around five,
that is when Santa Claus will arrive.
It’s tradition in many an Outback town
and kids with dogs chase the fire truck down.
The truck is decorated with tinsel and foil,
flashing it’s lights, flags fluttering.
There is Santa, way up on top
Waving to the crowds
tossing lollies down to all the kids;
while Mum and Dad watch on from the front porch.
