    Maybe it makes you more intense
    When your country's small and you live in tents;
    Kurds get gassed, they die to win
    Land from Yass to Deniliquin.
    Israel - it's the merest sliver,
    Fits between Hay and the Murray River;
    My map don't show Condamine,
    But it's probably bigger than Palestine.

    Imagine if old Yassa Arafat
    Was given everything south of Ararat
    Make the Middle East far less hairy,
    And none of us would miss Port Fairy.

    [Chorus:]
    Australia the worlds suburb
    Australia the worlds suburb

    Let's solve the whole Arabic mania,
    Let's sling 'em all! What's it called?...Tasmania.
    Put all of Israel east of Broome -
    Double the size we've got the room
    But nationalism's so damned myopic
    When you're in the atlas but microscopic -
    All those guys would rather blow it up
    Than move their home to Koo-wee-rup.
    Of all nations, the most superb -
    Australia - the world's suburb.

    New York, London, Paris, Munich fit 'em all in the Mallee District
    Solve the Pallestinian question, hundred k's North-East of Preston
    New York, London, Paris, Munich fit 'em all in the Mallee District
    Solve the Pallestinian question, hundred k's North-East of Preston

    (Chorus)(x2)

    New York, London, Paris, Munich fit 'em all in the Mallee District
    Solve the Pallestinian question, hundred k's North-East of Preston
    New York, London, Paris, Munich fit 'em all in the Mallee District
    Solve the Pallestinian question, hundred k's North-East of Preston

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Hundred k's North-East of Preston

    I want proof, not just statements. Give me a reference.

    Mata, is Gordon in Dubbo actually Gordon or Gordon Estate? If its Gordson Estate it doesnt count. The other Gordons however are in SA and QLD or WA, would have to look it up again.
