Once 'Waltzing Matilda 'was stopped me and the rest of Australia had no idea after the first few words.
In my opinion....it was stupid to change it.
A song about stealing sheep would be a bit of a weird choice for a national anthem. Kind of cool, but a weird choice.
why did I think you may say that :(

No. I knew all the words to the national anthem for England when I lived there but I need to learn the Aussie one. I think its good to know the words.
Yes - I love it!
The first two verses, yes, but you rarely hear more than the first verse sung, which is just as well since it gets increasingly irrelevant to modern Australian life as it goes on ("Brittania rule the waves!"). I didn't particularly try to learn it. I just have a good memory for song lyrics.
Yes, I do know the national anthem of India, my homeland.
Yes I do, although we don't get a chance to sing it very often. Sad.
I know national anthems to four countries where I have spent a significant part of my life, including Australia.
I know my birth country National Anthem God Save The Queen but I have trouble remembering the Australian national anthem.
I know the national anthem of both countries, Sri Lanka my homeland and Australia where I call home now. As kids it was compulsory to memorize the anthem so I learnt the Sri Lankan anthem then. once I migrated I learnt the Australian anthem after singing it so many times st my kids schools.

Yes, but I also have dual citizenship with another country and don't even know how that national anthem sounds!
No, I don't, and watchingit being sung at sports events etc., I don't think many other people know the oz. national anthem. Tony Abbott with his dames and knights would probably like us to be still singing God Save the Queen. I have heard some rousing anthems, but don't think ours is one of them.
It's a soppy, stupid, boring piece of music & words.

There must be an Australian composer who could write something better than this c@&$!
I cringe every time I hear it!

How about a Competition, Mr Abbott, for a 21st Century National Anthem?

BTW, I'm an Aussie, born & bred, have served my Nation, & I say what many people think, but don't have the I.F. to say.
Um doesn't it go like - australians all let us ring joyce, she's just turned 43. Just kidding lovelies.
