Christmas Songs 3 & 4 - The Australians

Going south for today's Yuletide selection folks, and what dichotomous treat it is.

First up is Aussie legend and adopted Maidonian, Rolf Harris, with his touching (and catchy) tale of the "Six White Boomers" (old man kangaroos) who pull Father Christmas' sleigh when he visits the lucky country.

In complete contrast, I also offer Aussie legend, Kevin "Bloody" Wilson and his, er, paean to the lost innocence of Christmas, wistfully reflecting in his inimitable unprintable way on the greed that dominates young people's thinking these days. NSFW, of course (indeed, not really suitable for anyone - Mum, please don't watch this), it's "Hey Santa":

Damn you. I'm going to be humming that second one all day now.

Interesting series, RWH.

Kids today!
I don't think that second one will be getting much air time this Christmas. I wonder how long it will last on YouTube. But it is rather funny.
