    I just asked DH if he knew the Australian anthem, he replied 'Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, oi, oi!'.

    Yes. We had to sing both verses every morning before school started.

    Mind you I couldn't remember the second verse off the top of my head, it came back when I seen the words though

    Yes I do.
    Ya know, back when I was in primary school, we'd sing God save the Queen every Monday morning, so I can remember most of that too.

    My MIL was in a body building contest in the US a few years back (yes, I am serious) and when her team mate accepted her first place award, they played Waltzing Matilda!

    Yep, I know both verses. Was a little rusty, but since going to a few school assembelies it came back to me.
