Our Aussie Flag

Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night, in our Southern sky of blue;
and the little old flag in the corner, that's part of our heritage too!
It's the English, the Scots and the Irish, who were sent to the ends of the earth;
the rogues and the schemers, the doers and dreamers, who gave our Australia birth.
And you who are shouting to change it, why do you not understand;
it's the flag of our laws and language, not the flag of a faraway land?
But there are lots of people who'll tell you how when Europe was plunged into night,
the little old flag in the corner, was their only symbol and light.
It doesn't mean we owe our allegiance to a forgotten imperial dream;
we've the stars to show where we're going and the old flag to show where we've been.
It's only an old piece of bunting, it's only an old coloured rag,
but thousands have died for it's honour and shed their best blood for our flag!
Anon.
