"Ha ha...Hey, Jay...you did really well with this tongue twister which began as an Australian song with a load of Aboriginal place names to trip the tongue even more!

The song "I've Been Everywhere" was written by Geoff Mack in 1959 and made popular by the Australian singer Lucky Starr in 1962.
The song (as originally written) listed Australian towns. It was later adapted by Hank Snow for North American (predominantly United States) place names and by John Hore (later known as John Grenell) with New Zealand place names (1966).
The song was a number 1 hit in Country Music in November 1962 in the United States for the recording artist Hank Snow.The song was also recorded by many others. Source: Wikipedia
Best,
Les."
