    G'day 2KM and 2KJ,Strike a light, that's a dinki di Aussie song and you blokes sing it so well. Strewth, it's a bewdy. There's nihnotg more dinkum than saying g'day to a mate.Now in English for those confused Oh, my gosh, that's a real Australian song and you all sing it so well. Wow, it's a good one. There's nihnotg more real than saying hello to a friend.I have the song on iTunes and have used it in class in the past. My favourite Australian song would probably be Waltzing Matilda . It's the song of a person who steals a sheep and throws himself into a billabong (pond) rather than being taken by police. When Australia was deciding on a new National Anthem to replace God Save the Queen , many suggested we use the music from Waltzing Matilda but it was thought not to be a good idea as it was about a person stealing a sheep. We have Advance Australia Fair as our National Anthem.Ross Mannell (NSW)Australia
