Once a Jolly Pastor

Once a jolly pastor
Camped in a caravan
Under the shade of a Kurrajong tree
And he sang as he prayed as he watched the baby's bottle boil
You'll be a Seventh Day Adventist like me

Seventh Day Adventist, Seventh Day Adventist
You'll be a Seventh Day Adventist like me
And he sang as he prayed as he watched the baby's bottle boil
You'll be a Seventh Day Adventist like me

Down came Lindy to snatch up Azaria
She picked up the scissors and stabbed her with glee
And she smiled as she shoved the baby in her camera bag
It's fun being a Seventh Day Adventist like me

Seventh day ....

Out came the dingo nosing round the campfire
Lindy winked at Michael and said it wasn't me
What happened to the baby you put in the camera bag?
Give it to the dingo and you'll get off scot free

Give it to the dingo, Give it to the dingo
Give it to the dingo and you'll get off scot free
What happened to the baby you put in the camera bag?
Give it to the dingo and you'll get off scot free

Up jumped the dingo and ran past the camera bag
You'll never blame her murder on me
And Azaria's ghost may be heard as you pass by that Kurrajong
Mummy was the one who did away with me.....

note: a for-real contemporary folksong. Complete with religious
