The Australian National Anthem, Re-Written

For best results, sing to the australian national anthem tune... :)

We’re known for barbeques and fun
Flies come in hordes and droves
Sausages sizzle out the back
Cricket for men and boys

You’d think we’d get sick of the sun
Of the dust and dry heat
But that’s just part of our lives here
And it’s a part of me

There is no snow come winter-time
Just clouds and driving rain
Then spring arrives and new life comes
Soon summer’s here again

This is the heart of my home land
Rain, sun and that red dust
Our big old gum trees standing tall
Their shadows dance at dusk.

A breeze of wattle scented air
The waves upon the sand
The beauty ripe and uncontained
Australia, our land.
