I was having a wee break. Then I came across this little number. Never heard it before so I obviously move in different circles to much of the population, haha!!!

National Anthem of STRAYA (to the tune of 'Hey Ya')


My country don't share no borders
'Cos of all the waters that surround our land
Thank god for our resources
'Cos they are the sources of our wealthy land
Don't try to find the capital
Or fight the animals
You're on your own
Just drive from town to paradise
And you'll see why we call Australia home

Straya

You think you've got it
Oh you think you've got it
But have you got a rock where there is nothing at all
We get together
Oh we get together
The weather's always better when there's cricket involved
And we believe that mateship is forever
We're all mates, we're all mates, we're all mates
We're all mates, we're all mates
And we're multicultural
So why ya why ya
Why ya why ya why ya
Not living in Australia when you know we are so happy here

Alright now fellas
Yeah!
Now what's cooler than a big cold beer?
Ice cold!

Shake it [x9]
Shake it like a polaroid picture
Shake it [x9]
Shake it like a polaroid picture
