Alternative national anthem for Australia

December 4th, 2005 · No Comments

This is one for the Australians (since you’re the only ones who know the Australian national anthem). The Age published this on 26 January, 2005, but I only saw it today. You have to sing it to really enjoy it. It doesn’t make sense, but the words rhyme with the real lyrics, which makes it fun…

“Australians all own ostriches
Four minus one is three,
With olden royals, we’re fair and loyal,
Our home is dirt by sea. I learned to bounce on nature strips
In booties stitched with care.
In mystery’s haze let’s harvest maize
And plant azaleas there.

Enjoy full trains and let us in
And dance Australia, Yeah!”
