Celebrate the failure
You oughta be congratulated
Gonna gather underneath that big old flag
That looks like New Zealand's dirty snot rag

Celebrate the failure
Get me a number for Human Nature
Got some words from a poem by Dorothea Mackellar
But I need the motherfucker sung acapella

Celebrate the failure

Well it's a black armband view of history
So we're never never never never gonna say sorry
Typewriter stuck on the return key
Ooooooh here's Johnny!

So citizens all let us rejoice
And sing together in an out of key voice
Come on join in, cos the push is on
To make "Up There Cazaly" our national song

I need a lifeguard, a schoolkid, a jackarroo
Backed by a soundtracked didgeridoo
I want a long slow shot over there
And a green and gold boxing kangaroo

Celebrate the failure

Back at the lab we're mating
A koala from a Ken Done painting
With a lock of a media baron's hair
To make a fuzzy, cuddly, telegenic billionaire

Celebrate the failure
Remember that your leaders hate ya
You win! Congratulations!
You got to celebrate the failure

Well it's a black armband view of history
So we're never never never never gonna say sorry
With an axe through the door of a nation's psyche
Oooooh here's Johnny!

Celebrate the failure
