Charlie Mgee's ode to his Dad's composting dunny. Based on a documentary he made with his mate, Pickle when they were fourteen.

lyrics

My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny, well you might think it's funny,
But my dad's dunny doesn't flush.

My dad's dunny's full of dirt
But it's never activated smelly red alert
Don't worry about the germs
'Cos they're eaten by the worms
Yeah, my dad's dunny's full of dirt

My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny, well you might think it's funny,
But my dad's dunny doesn't flush.

My dad's dunny grows fruit trees
Breaking down your business so there’s no chance of disease
It's safer and it's clean
To turn brown into green
That's why my dad's dunny grows fruit trees

My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny, well you might think it's funny,
But my dad's dunny doesn't flush.

Well he never needs a plumber
cos the dunny's never blocked
Fertiliser for the garden,
well, the pile is always stocked
Just chuck some sawdust on your
number ones and twos
Then sit back and admire
all the water you don’t use

My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny doesn't flush
My dad's dunny, well you might think it's funny,
But my dad's dunny doesn't flush
I said my dad's dunny doesn't flush
yeah my dad's dunny doesn't flush!
