Review
I think that the boys have done a great job in creating this song and I love how they used didgeridoo and clapping sticks. I rate this Australian beet box / hip hop music a 9/10 I only gave it a 9 out of 10 because some of the song isn't very audible but other than that it is very good!

Where is Wilcannia?
Lyrics
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge x2

Call me Wally this is where I’m at
I wear my NRL baseball cap
Paramatta’s my team if you know what I mean
To be the captain – that’s my dream

My name is Keith from Wilcannia streets
I walk on stilts to beat the beat
When I get home I shake a leg
This is my rhyme, that’s what I said

Chorus:
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge

p..p…p ..play some didge x 4

Well Colroy’s here and I have no fear
All you wild pigs better watch out for my spear
I’m with the gang and I’m almost ten
I want to be an actor like Jackie Chan

Lendal is my name and I like to do back flips
Listen to the words that come from my lips
Jump off the bridge and I play the didge
When I catch a fish I put it in the fridge

My name is Buddy, I can’t stand still
Wilcannia to Dubbo to Broken Hill
Been moving round from town to town
And this is how I get down

Chorus:
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge x2

…P……p…p.. Play some didge x3

(Beat Stops)
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge
