Ba-oom bop, ba-oom bop
Ba-oom bop, ba-oom bop

Some men choose to be police,
Others work in factories
Some men work as waiters,
Giving service with a smile

Some guys have less common jobs;
Ice cream tasters, guys in the mob
But there was only one man on this rock
Whose job was hunting crocodiles

Now there was only one John Lennon
And there was only one Marc Bolan
And there's only one Steve Irwin
At least 'till yesterday...

Steve was swimming in Australia
Making a documentary
When a stingray got a little scared
Who wasn't used to strangers in the sea
He shot Steve's heart with poison barbs
The hunter's eyes then lost their shine
And even though his heart don't work
There will always be some room for him in mine.

Now there was only one John Lennon
And there was only one Marc Bolan
And there's only one Steve Irwin
At least 'till yesterday
And we still have got Bob Dylan
I hope the scared stingrays don't kill him
'Cause he's the last living legend
With 3 syllables and an "n" at the end
With 3 syllables and an "n" at the end of his name

Oh, it was terribly ironic
The way you had to die
You taught us about conservationalism
And how to keep endangered animals alive

Crikey man, the world is gonna miss you...

There was only one John Lennon
And there was only one Marc Bolan
And there's only one Steve Irwin
At least 'till yesterday...

Ba-oom bop, ba-oom bop
Ba-oom bop, ba-oom bop
