Maybe something by the Living End bassist... Witch Doctor sounds impressive and is pretty easy.

Flea was born here in Oz.
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

Yeah I had to do the same thing, and I couldn't find anything so I just made up my own song.

Well, if you're Australian, I see no problem, just write something.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Hey, as far as Flea goes, maybe try 'nobody weird like me'? It could be a challenge of a high enough stature to pass your teachers eye.
