Jingle Bells, Batman Smells 2

Judging by my countersiterometeriser I've had a lot of people visiting over the past few days looking for the alternative, Australian lyrics to the seasonal anthem Jingle Bells. Happy to oblige:

Jingle Bells, Batman smells,
Robin Flew away.

Wonderwoman lost her bosoms
Flying TAA!

For the curious, TAA stands for Trans Australia Airlines, a domestic Australian airline which was gobbled up by Qantas in 1995. So, now you know!

As I have observed before the thirst for culture on this island is absolutely amazing!!

Anyone know the words in Chinese?

Anon 7:07, as you wish;

丁当响响铃, 蝙蝠侠气味, 知更鸟飞行。Wonderwoman 丢失了她的怀里飞行TAA!

Which translates back as:

Tinkle sound bell, bat variant smell,
Robin flight.
Wonderwoman lost her bosom
To fly TAA!

Ah you must be using a more inferior type of translator than me, but reading it again it seems better than the original.

Oh, and I always thought TAA meant "Try Another Airline" - which I guess it did.
