 once upon a time



Land of beauty, land of colour,
Land that lies way down under.
Flag of yellow, black, and red
Its people indegenious to the land
called Australia, lying way down yonder.

Mordern cities, bush and country
Colour and light it's main delight.
Cross it's red heartland.
It's a land you'll never get over.
This land called Australasia a handshake, a nod.

This land harbours all people and asks
Only that you accept their way of life.

Here it is, great southern land,
Vibrant and proud
Pack a swag. Go, walkabout
Its a hard life, a good life, no hand/outs
This is a land called:-Australia.
