This little revision of the national anthem’s first verse is inspired by Australian politics and is dedicated to the Queen’s visit—a suitable occasion for discussing Australia’s identity … moving forward.
Advance Australia Fair (Skinned)
Australia is a barren land,
Where bogans can be free;
With iron ore and coal from soil;
We’ll all drive HSVs;
“F#ck off, we’re full” our bumpers say
We like our refos rare;
With drawn-out vowels, now let us sing,
Advaance Austraalya Fair.
