Once a Jolly Swagrat

jolly swagrat beneath the coolibah tree

Once a jolly swagrat camped by the billabong

Under the shade of a coolibah tree

And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled

“The world can never hold enough yogies for me!”

. . . and you know the rest.

Postscript: Until I looked at the logs for this page, I had no idea there really was such a thing as a swagrat. But judging by the kind of pages that come up when I search for the term, fond parodies of Australia’s unofficial national anthem do not enter into it.
