Back on the block

By Steven | April 23, 2010

I’m back in Wellington after a sojourn in Melbourne for most of six months.

While we’re not talking about media law, I will take the opportunity to post the alternate version of the Australian national anthem I composed for them while I was over there. I have long been impressed by the line “Our home is girt by sea”. It’s pithy. It captures an essential feature of the country. It’s undeniably accurate. Alas, the rest of the lyrics do not live up to this impressive standard, so I set about writing ones that did. The tune is the same:

Australia is a continent

With sand and dirt and trees

Inside there’s not much water but

Our home is girt by sea

It’s got a lot of wattle

And the odd Koala Bear

It’s mostly flat but way out back

A giant rock is there

Perhaps we could gently encourage them to adopt this much preferable version by singing these lyrics during the anthem-playing before test matches with Australia…
