How the Communists have wrecked our land

“Advance Australia Fair” was made the Australian National Anthem in 1984. Ok, it’s been clear for sometime that this is a piece of leftist propaganda, slipped in as our Anthem by that socialist Bob Hawke. (Let’s not forget that he was head of that union organisation dedicated to destroying our way of life, the ACTU. Their stated policies include such things as improving job security and wages for workers! Imagine what sort of country we’d become if they had their way!)

Lyrics were changed to this:

“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;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

“Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.”

The second verse was inexplicably changed by the socialists from its original.

When gallant Cook from Albion sail’d,
To trace wide oceans o’er,
True British courage bore him on,
Till he landed on our shore.
Then here he raised Old England’s flag,
The standard of the brave;
With all her faults we love her still,
“Brittannia rules the wave!”
In joyful strains then let us sing
“Advance Australia fair!”

So, I”m proposing a few minor changes to make the song more relevant to the wonderful country, Australia is in the process of becoming. In the interests of effeciency – we don’t want people having to learn a new tune – I propose that rather than pay money to some already overpaid musician we only change the lyrics.

The first line, “Australians all let us rejoice” is a bit too wishy-washy and “let us” implies that there’s an element of choice about it. I propose that it become “must now” instead.

“For we are young and free” sends the wrong message. While we value “freedom”, in this user pays society, we don’t want anyone to think that there’s any such thing as a free lunch. This should become “And join the company”.

The next lines in this verse are self-explanatory.

“Australians all must now rejoice,
And join the company;
We’ve coal and soil and lots of oil
Some in East Timor’s sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
For miners rich and rare;
In history’s page, no culture wars
Advance Australia Fair.
In Liberal view, no black armband,
Advance Australia Fair.

As for the second verse, well, we all know that certain left organisations have appropriated the Southern Cross, so it’s a rather divisive line. I propose to remind people how lucky they are to be working. In the third line, I felt that the word “commonwealth” somehow gave the impression that we all should be sharing in the wealth, so this also has to be changed. What we end up with is this:

“Those lucky ones who have a job
Will toil with hearts and hands;
To help the trickle down effect
Which failied in other lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ll process you off-shore
Just like our Anthem’s second verse

You’re something we ignore.
We love the strong, we hate the weak,
Advance Australia Fair.”

Australia, nobody can say we’re not fair.
