Thread Name: Lyr Req: Give Me a Home among the Gum Trees
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: to an australian song
I'm reminded that I missed my opportunity at Christmas to get the disc details of Captain Rock's LP and the "words" to the Verse in French doggerel. And the thread droppped out of sight without me responding to Joybell; it's a small world sometimes.

And I'm surprised McGrath's search didn't reveal "mullet" as a type of haircut reputed to be favoured by what Sydneysiders dismiss as "westies".

Perhaps I've lived in the wrong culture, but I've only ever used the term "mull" as a verb, to mean either heat wine with spices (making mulled wine) or to go and ponder (mull over) some thinking. But them St Andrews and Christmas Hills were indeed places where a joint wasn't just a building.

Cheers, Rowan
