The National Anthem

Given we've just celebrated Australia Day, it's worth noting that our national anthem works perfectly when sung to the tune of Gilligan's Island.

I remembered this as I was re-reading one of my favourite books - Confessions of a Thirteenth Man - by John Harms. A great read about a bloke who follows the 1998/99 Ashes tour around Australian in his 1982 Holden Camira (incredibly voted car of the year in 1982).

Go on, give it a go......

Australians all let us rejoice, for we are young and free

With golden soil and wealth for toil, our home is girt by sea

Our land abounds in nature's gifts of beauty rich and rare

In history's page let every stage advance Australia fair (Advance Australia fair)

Spot the difference

Hey Vando ... an old comedian friend of mine specialises in similar stuff to this ... you can also sing Advance Australia Fair to the tune of Working Class Man and the theme song of the Beverley Hillbillies.
