Australia: Young and Free

Can you believe the national anthem?

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.
Advance Australia Fair

The best part of our national anthem/dirge is that it fits the theme song of Gilligan’s Island perfectly. Or Emily Dickinson’s Because I Could Not Stop for Death, if you are less flippantly inclined.
