That's The Way
To Spell

traditional Australian song
composer unknown

Woolloomooloo is a harbour-side, inner-city eastern suburb of Sydney, NSW.

You might think Woolloomooloo is the longest place name, but it's not. The longest official single-word place name in Australia is ...
Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill in South Australia. The name means "where the devil urinates" in the regional Pitjantjatjara language.

Fair dinkum! We don't make this stuff up.

W double O, double L, double O,
M double O, LO, O.

Upon my word 'tis true
That's the way to spell Woolloomooloo.
Now I bet a dollar
There isn't a scholar
Can spell that right first go:

W double O, double L, double O,
M double O, LO, O.
