I'M AUSSIE, AS PURE AS CAN BE...





I'M AUSSIE, AS PURE AS CAN BE...

I'm an Aussie, as Aussie can be
pure to the bone, that is me
and my parents were the same,
for they had a true Aussie name
perhaps a bit longer than some
from where Dad's family had come..

..but they were true Aussies like me!

One grandfather came over from Greece
one grandmother also, for peace..
another grandfather Hawkesbury born
other grandma Clare shamrocks adorn..

..all pure Aussie, as Aussie can be!

More came from England, and even from Wales
some brought from Ireland such wonderful tales
of leprechauns and wee folk and being so poor
 green meadows, thatched roofs and a welcoming door..

..all pure Aussie, as Aussie can be!

Whether from Greece, from Ireland, England or Wales
or any fine country, with interesting tales..

..we are all pure Aussies, as Aussie can be.
