    I know both verses

    But I do remember only singing the first verse in year 1/2/3 at primary school, & in year 4 being taught the second verse. I was shocked/thought our music teacher made it up

    I think I remember most of it, but there would be some awkward humming if I had to sing it as I don't think I could recall the whole thing.

    Yes I know both verses but I discovered last year when my DS started school that I was getting one word wrong - it's a silly little word, like 'a' instead of 'the' or something and I can't even remember it now.

    Apparently I wasn't the only one making the mistake though so now I'm curious as to which way is right

    Yep I know both verses. We have kids at work (preschool) that know the first and sing it, it's a bit cute

    I know 3 of the verses - I think there are 5 in total? But only two verses of advance Australia fair are commonly sung, my school where I taught sang the 3 verses every week

    I know the 2 verses.

    I think the original song (before it was adopted as our anthem) had 4 or 5 verses/
