If youre a True Blue
Aussie, then talk the way we do.
Like Stone the Crows and Ridgy Didge and Ow ya goin'
Waltz along Matildas and sing of Gundagai,
Talk about the swagmen and eat the big meat pie.
If youve never humped a Bluey, or thrown a boomerang,
And never eaten damper, with Vegemite or jam;
If youve never seen the "Outback", from Bourke to Timbuktu,
Then sorry mate, but you cant be, a Dinkum Real True Blue.
Aussie blokes and sheilas, are Bonza through and through,
Theyve camped down by a Billabong, and played a Didgeridoo;
They drive around in Holdens', and go to Two-Up Schools,
They play the game of Rugby League, and a lot of "Aussie Rules".
Aussies live Down Under, and are very proud of that.
Theyve fought in many battles, and wear the old "Slouch Hat";
Theyve fished the Murrumbidgee, and burnt the Gidgee Tree.
Theyve hunted Crocs at Walkabout with Crocodile Dundee.
Have you heard the Kookaburras laugh, and the Curlews when they cry,
The Goannas scamper up a tree, and the Roos go bounding by;
Have you seen the signs of nature, in Australias Great Outback,
From Darwin to The Alice, and down The Birdsville Track?
Have you ever sailed in Moreton Bay, or surfed at Bondi Beach,
Have you ever caught a Melbourne Tram, or walked down Flinders Street;
Have you journeyed to The Darling Downs, or crossed The Great Divide,
And travelled on The Nullarbor to reach the other side?
Have you been to Tumbarumba, shooting Kanga Bloody Roos,
Have you been down to The Local for a night out on The Booze;
Have you travelled The Pacific, The Bruce, The Sturt and Hume,
Have you ever seen The Min-Min Light, and been across to Broome?
If youre a "Dinkum Aussie", and done what Aussies do,
You must be feeling very proud, to be a real "True Blue";
No matter what part of Australia, The north, south, east or west,
By being a "Fair Dinkum Aussie", youre one of the world's very best.
