Received this from friends that is doing the rounds on bookface yesterday. Being Australia Day it bought a smile to my dial of little things I think a lot of us have done and bought back fond memories.
Wayne   Cheesy

I grew up an Aussie Kid
I've grown up Aussie style, a sun kissed Wheat Bix kid,
I've played street cricket, broken windows and hid.
I've choked on a fly and still been a happy little Vegemite,
I've smiled even when the mozzies have started to bite.
I've swung from the Hills Hoist then ran from Mums smack,
I've learnt that a kid could starve if it wasn't for Snack Pack.
I've made a meal of Nutri Grain and drunk Milk with a Tim-Tam straw,
I've lived through summers each hotter than the one before.
I've had beer for breakfast and had snag sangers for tea,
I've burnt my soles on sand and nearly drowned in the sea.
I travelled to places like Mullumbimby, Goondiwindi and Woolloomoolo,
I've swatted at Louie and yes I have had a red back on my loo.
I've searched the summer night for sleep under a fan,
I've been as happy as a pig in #### and been not happy Jan.
I've seen the giants of my land, the prawn, banana and the sheep,
I've said "she'll be right" just before I've landed in a huge #### heap.
I've Slip Slop and Slapped but I've forgotten the Aeroguard,
I've thrown another prawn on the barbie with mates in the backyard.
I've had a Gaytime, cracked a Cornetto and tried every Paddle Pop,
I've even had to chuck a sickie after a long night on the Passion Pop.
I've gone deaf from cicadas and dealt with the blue arsed fly,
I've eaten Pavs and Lammos and poured dead horse on top of a pie.
I've done some hard yakka and been flat out like a lizard drinking,
I've seen a bogan with a mullet and thought "what the hell was he thinking".
I've said things like "ripper", "bonza" and "fair suck of the saveloy",
I've melted for day after day, to then greet a wild storm with joy.
I've mastered my rites of passage like the full pelt sprint in thongs,
I've danced to Acca-Dacca and know the words to John Farnham songs.
I've swum at pristine beaches and I've smelt eucalypt in the air,
I've danced the national dance the "hot sand shuffle" with flair.
I've peeled off my skin after long summer days under the sun,
I marvelled at our wildlife and from a few I have had to run.
I've grown up in the lucky country, lucky it is peaceful and free,
I've now have the great brown land deep inside of me.
I've stood for our National Anthem and I've screamed oi oi oi,
I've grown such pride for my country that nothing could destroy.
I've stood under the Southern Cross and been in awe of what I can see,
Cause I'm True Blue, I'm Dinky Di, I am 100 percent proud Aussie.
