The text reads:
A swimmer, a surfer, a real down-to-earther
A barbeque lighter, and a shell-be-righter
A catch you later, and good-on-you-mater
A larrikin, quipster, a boardie, a hipster
A lawyer, a teacher, a go-to-the beacher
A doctor, a suiter, a driver of uter
A muso, a trader, injustice crusader
An ocean lifesaver, a doer of favour
A homeland adorer, a traveller, explorer
A footie match shouter, a bush walkabout-er
An invite you over, a share my pavlova
A Lamington maker, and Anzac bic baker
A Vegemite toaster, a making-the-moster
A sporting game goer, a cricket ball thrower
A beer stubby holder, a go green and golder
A Movember grower and staunchly fair go-er
A Melbourne Cup better, a self-made go getter
A Wiggles defender and fun Facebook friender
An Aussie flag waver, true blue 'til the graver
A have-a-good dayer, a lover of Straya
That's what makes an Aussie!
