GUEST,LynnT Lyr Req: Son of a Scoundrel (from film 'Ned Kelly' (7) Was yer grandma a whore (born of Austral 05 Dec 00

I'm looking for the words of an Aussie song, perhaps by Eric Bogle; the chorus goes:

Was your grandma a whore, was your grandpa a thief
Were they and bounders who fell to their grief?
If you're born of Australia, I know who you be
You're a son of a son of a scoundrel like me!

The verses put down various upper-crust Aussies for their hoity-toity attitudes.

A DC group called Clam Chowder recorded this many years back; no idea where they got it from. Can anybody help -- I couldn't find it in DIGITRAD...
