По итогам 2015 года Австралия вошла в пятерку самых счастливых и обеспеченных стран мира. Нелегкие, и нередко и суровые природные условия, высокая трудовая этика, богатые природные ресурсы. культура и творчество как часть повседневной жизни. В этом Австралия сходна и с Норвегией, которая в 2015 возглавила список лучших стран для жизни простых людей. Это видео сделано в обычном для австралийского туризма стиле «Земля и люди«. Красота дикой природы и удивительная архитектура в гармонии с напряженным трудом и энергичными веселыми людьми труда.

Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya’ reworked into the unofficial national anthem of ‘Straya’ (a.k.a Australia).

LYRICS:

My country don’t share no borders
‘Cos of all the waters that surround our land
Thank god for our resources
‘Cos they are the sources of our wealthy land
Don’t try to find the capital
Or fight the animals
You’re on your own
Just drive from town to paradise
And you’ll see why we call Australia home

Straya
Straya
Straya
Straya

You think you’ve got it
Oh you think you’ve got it
But have you got a rock where there is nothing at all
We get together
Oh we get together
The weather’s always better when there’s cricket involved
And we believe that mateship is forever
We’re all mates, we’re all mates, we’re all mates
We’re all mates, we’re all mates
And we’re multicultural
So why ya why ya
Why ya why ya why ya
Not living in Australia when you know we are so happy here

Straya

Straya

Alright now fellas
Yeah!
Now what’s cooler than a big cold beer?
Ice cold!

Shake it [x9]
Shake it like a polaroid picture
Shake it [x9]
Shake it like a polaroid picture

Straya
Straya
Straya
Straya
