By: Harold Gretton, 1930s[1]


To the tune of Lieber Augustin

3/4
G7 C G7 C
I heard this sad song-oh, in the old Orongorongo
C C G7 C
"There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me"
G7 C G7 C
I said to the vocalist, "Oh, why do you so insist
C C G7 C
'There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me'?"
 
Chorus
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking, double-bunking
C C G7 C
No more double-bunking, double-bunking for me
 
G7 C G7 C
"Oh I've had a gutsful of tramps where the hut's full
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me
G7 C G7 C
I've weakened and lost weight. I'm nervously prostrate
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me"
 
Chorus
 
G7 C G7 C
"My mouth's full of fur too, I can't eat my burgoo
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me
G7 C G7 C
I'm washed out like a dish rag, I've ruptured my sleeping bag
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me"
 
Chorus
 
G7 C G7 C
Henceforth and hereafter I'll sleep on a rafter
G7 C G7 C
On a peak or a pinnacle or under a waterfall
G7 C G7 C
On sand or on shingle, but I'm going to sleep single
C C G7 C
There'll be no more double-bunking, double-bunking for me
 
Chorus
