A truly great National Day song.

I've been to cities that never close down,
from New York to Rio and old London town.
But no matter how far or how wide I roam,
I still call Australia home.

I'm always traveling, I love being free,
and so I keep leavin' the sun and the sea.
But my heart lies waitin' over the foam,
I still call Australia home.

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world,
away from their family and friends.
But as the world gets older and colder,
it's good to know where your journey ends.

Someday we'll all be together once more,
when all of the ships come back to the shore.
I realise something I've always known,
I still call Australia home.

But no matter how far or wide I roam,
I still call Australia I still call Australia, I still call Australia home.
But no matter how far or wide I roam,
I still call Australia I still call Australia, I still call Australia home.

It's unashamedly Australian. And it certainly has its detractors. But this is a song that I'd actually listen to on the MP3 player if I could find the right version. That and the fact that the country in question is actually mentioned.

City Harvest strikes another home run! Score one for the gullible idiots who actually believe the unmitigated hypocrisy that spouts from this bastion of corruption, which by its very title as a "church" denigrates all actual churches that do not twist the Holy Word.
