Thread Name: Lyr Req: Give Me a Home among the Gum Trees
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: to an australian song
I heard it on Steve Irwin's memorial celebration (calling it a service does it an injustice), and I knew I'd come across the word somewhere, and this is where it turns out.
The way it was sung demonstrated how it's possible to have a tongue in cheek and a tear in the eye at the same time. Some people have trouble doing that, and that's a bit of a shame.
