John Gray Politically incorrect national anthems (119* d) Lyr Add: CONVICT STREAK 22 Mar 02


Okay, so rather than just not liking Advance Australia Fair, let's be really politically incorrect.
Dave Warner from his album in the late 70's, Dave Warner's From The Suburbs - Mug's Game.

Convict Streak.

Maybe its because of our convict streak
We want to fight everyone we meet
Anzac Day is our day of the year
We march our march, we drink our beer
We don't like Slopes, we don't like Yanks
I'd personally like to blow up every Commie tank
We're only few but wee fought in'nam
Packed our guns alongside Uncle Sam

Ask any of us, it were no sin
The only crime was that we didn't win and
The Poms are weak as piss, the French are queer
The Germans are wankers but they make good beer
Don't criticize what you don't understand
If you think I'm talkin' shit you don't belong in this land

I'm an Australian, we all are
We watch the tele and we drive our car
But don't you ever say we're weak
Or you'll learn all about our Convict Streak
The world began with Adam and Eve
But Australia started at Gallipoli
Our fathers put the desert into desert rats
Their uncles slipped the boots in up in Landers Flats
Don't criticize what you don't understand
It's not that we're behind the times
We're a different land

We might be slobs but we're not weak
maybe its because of our convict streak
The Poms are weak as piss, the French are queer
The Germans are wankers but they make good beer
Don't criticize what you don't understand
If you think I'm talkin' shit you don't belong in this land

I'm Australian, so are you
It doesn't matter if you're Ding or Jew
But just remember while you're here
You march our march you drink our beer.
