Australia Day!!

Posted: January 26, 2006 in my news, random ramble
Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
We’ve 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,
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia fair.
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
We’ll toil with hearts and hands,
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands,
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share,
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia fair.

Yes that is the Australian national anthem… and today is Australia Day where every Australian is out have a barbe (al least according to Sam Kekovic they should) or picnic or watching the Aussie Open… Btw yes I do know how to sing the Aussie anthem… as well as Waltzing Matilda but that one has weird lyrics in it… Swagman… Billabong… Anyway… There’s been many debates on whether or not the anthem should be changed because some say it is not suitable to reflect the current Australia or something… At least that’s a better excuse than Malaysia wanting to change the word “Negaraku” to “Malaysiaku” just because it wasn’t written by a Malaysian… as a matter of fact in the beginning some people thought Waltzing Matilda should have been the anthem but it was rejected because the song is about a drunken guy who steals or something… I’m not sure… but Waltzing Matilda is I would say to Aussies like the Assunta school song is to every Assuntarian… we just love to sing it…!!! And also I would just like to mention that I will be moving into my new place tomorrow… YAY!!!! Thank you again to Vin Li and the other people at Villiers for being so nice as to let me crash there… So G’day to all… “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie” “Oi! Oi! Oi!”…
