jimmie_d,<br><br>If you're a 'skins fan, it'll probably be a loooog season for you! Spurrier is Bush League (how ironically appropriate for a team from Washington these days). ;D

So.....Uncle, It seems that th I.R.B are going to allow you to sing ''Waltzing Matilda'' in the upcoming World Cup.!<br>Maybe you could give us your take on what this tune is all about?<br>  I've heard a few and am curious is all.

yeah, the 57 old farts have done the dirty. Now that we're allowed to sing, we probably won't bother. But if they told us we can't then we'll scream our bloody lungs out.<br><br>I think we'll need more than an alternative national anthem to help us. I'm tipping England v. NZ for the final and the bloody kiwis to win it. Please God, anyone but England. I couldn't stand Clive's smugness and bagging of the opposition, if they won. He really is a bad winner.<br><br>btw Waltzing Matilda is basically the story of a bloke who steals a sheep while he's camped beside a creek. The cops come and bust him, but he runs away and kills himself. If you camp by that creek, his ghost will come and sing to you.<br><br>Pathetic, isn't it? Still, thats what we like singin' about and the tune is a snappy little number.

It was suggested that there be a number of interpretations of said tune <br><br>   1;  it was th jig you threw at th end of a rope<br>   2;when a swaggy went walkabout, it was his swag ,that became Matilda<br>   3;or ,and the most probable ,when you drag a sheep out to shear,you ''waltz '' it ,..hence the sayin'<br>Waltzin' Matilda<br><br>     Of course this is only true to a bygone age....

Point 2 is considered the general explanation - Matilda being a name given to the swag. Waltzing matilda meant hitting the road (the swag being one's belongings wrapped in cloth and slung over the shoulder).<br>
