Yeah, it’s not just the words that need changing it’s the whole song. I don’t like Advance Australia Fair as our national anthem. It’s not stirring or uplifting. It’s just boring. How many even know what the second verse is or what “girt by sea” means? Doesn’t the panel agree if we’re in the business of changing the anthem’s words to make it more inclusive, why don’t we have a competition to create some anthemic choices and then have a national vote on it?
Why should I have to accept something that I had zero choice in? It was all decided before I was around. At least if it’s put to the vote and people still choose Advance Australia Fair, we’ve all had a say...... and it should be done every generation! Change the words and change the lot because it’s just dull and meaningless to the majority.
