Lyrics - Yorta Yorta

(Australian Aboriginal folk song)

Inanay gupu wana,
Inanay gupu wana,
Ay ay ay oo-la,
Oo-la oo-la oo-la ay,
Yippee ay yipee ay,
Goo wana goo wana goo wana goo wa, Choo!
Goo wana goo wana goo wana goo wa, Choo!

Translation notes

This lullaby cannot be translated word for word. It is said to be about a striped-tailed lizard called a “goanna.” The “Choo!” might be the sound of trying to shoo away the goannas. (source)
