Aussie Olympians show the right stuff


Cheers and tears for our gallant Aussie athletes in Rio.
Cheers and tears for our gallant Aussie athletes in Rio.

THEY flew to Rio de Janeiro,

To represent our land.

A group of Aussie athletes,

A proud and gallant band.

The ranting from our media,

Brought pressure to their minds.

As headlines screamed out

champions,

Are not the losing kind.

We cheered aroud the telly,

When Australia first struck gold.

Knowing in our hearts,

We’d soon hit the motherlode.

Soon our champs stood on the dais,

And there was magic in the air.

When we heard our song

which brought a tear,

Advance Australia Fair.
