Don’t go Flookin’ through that old camphor Bb6box woman
FBb6
You Fknow those old things only make you Bb6cry
FBb6
When you Fdream upon that little bunny Bb6rug
FBb6
It Fmakes you think that life has passed you Bb6by
FBb6
There are Fdays when you wish the world would Bb6stop woman
FBb6
But Fthen you know some wounds would never Bb6heal
FBb6
But when I Fbrowse the early pages of the Bb6children
C7sus4F
It's C7sus4then I know exactly how you Ffeel.
Bb6F
Hey it’s Bb6July and the winter sun is Fshining
Bb6F
And the Bb6Cootamundra wattle is my Ffriend
Bb6F
For Bb6all at once my childhood never Fleft me
C7sus4F
‘Cause C7sus4wattle blossoms bring it back Fagain
FBb6
It’s FSunday and you should stop the Bb6worry woman,
FBb6
FCome out here and sit down in the Bb6sun
FBb6
FCan’t you hear the magpies in the Bb6distance?
FBb6
FDon’t you feel the new day has beBb6gun?
FBb6
FCan’t you hear the bees making Bb6honey woman
FBb6
In the Fspotted gums where the bellbirds Bb6ring?
FBb6
You might Fgrow old and bitter cause you Bb6missed it
C7sus4F
You C7sus4know some people never hear such Fthings
Bb6F
Hey it’s Bb6July and the winter sun is Fshining
Bb6F
And the Bb6Cootamundra wattle is my Ffriend
Bb6F
For Bb6all at once my childhood never Fleft me
C7sus4F
‘Cause C7sus4wattle blossoms bring it back Fagain

Don’t Fbuy the daily papers any Bb6more woman
FBb6
FRead all about what’s going on in Bb6hell
FBb6
FThey don’t care to tell the world of Bb6kindness
FBb6
FGood news never made a paper Bb6sell
FBb6
There’s all the Fcolours of the rainbow in the Bb6garden woman
FBb6
And Fsymphonies of music in the Bb6sky
FBb6
FHeaven’s all around us if you’re Bb6looking
C7sus4F
But C7sus4how can you see it if you Fcry
Bb6F
Hey it’s Bb6July and the winter sun is Fshining
Bb6F
And the Bb6Cootamundra wattle is my Ffriend
Bb6F
For Bb6all at once my childhood never Fleft me

‘Cause C7sus4wattle blossoms bring it back Fagain.
