Do you know all the words to the Australian national anthem?

I thought I did until an American friend of mine mentioned a second verse to me a decade or so ago. I had no idea there was more than one! We never sang more than the first at school, and it was never mentioned there was more to it.

No. I only know the first verse - not the second.
I moved here 7 years ago from England, so I can kind of use that as an excuse - although I think 7 years is a bit too long to be an excuse now... I really should learn the second verse.

No I don't.. and I'm not really sure I need to.. do I?

First verse and the first line of the second verse.
I don't really feel a connection to an anthem, I am not really patriotic, so it isn't high up there on importance to me.

I know both verses. Only ever comes in useful if I'm at a trivia night though.

Yes I do. I learnt the second verse when I was about 7. I'm probably a bit rusty but I doubt it would take long for me to remember it correctly.

Yup, know the whole thing. My high school would sing the whole thing and not just the first verse.
I was at DS assembly today and they have made the Anthem go to Aboriginal themed music (Didgeridoo music through it) which was the first time I'd ever heard it that way.

I used to in primary school, not so much anymore. If I hear it being sung I can remember bits n pieces.

I think i have a freaky memory for stuff like that haha. i can also sing Do Ray Me Far So La Ti Do backwards with out having to have it written down haha
