Union Songs

New National Anthem/Flag

A song by Geoff Francis and Peter Hicks©2003 Geoff Francis and Peter Hicks

Oh say! Can you see by the dawn's early light
What once proudly we hailed as Australia's soil?
But the flag we serve now is the stars and the stripes,
While Eureka's bold cross has been bartered for oil.
Now it catches the beam of the morning's first gleam,
With a small change to add an Australian theme.
Tis the star spangled banner now that flies from our mast
With our Johnny Howard's head stuck right up Dubya's arse.


Many thanks to Geoff Francis and Peter Hicks for permission to add this song to the Union Songs collection. It commorates the visit to Australia of US President George W. Bush October 2003.
