Australia, I Always Wanted To Go There - Poem by Phil Smith

You are from Australia
Why did you come here
Australia is so beautiful
I always wanted to go there

I haven't gone to New York
To visit Lady Liberty
Or the Empire State Building
Australia, always wanted to go there

Mt Rushmore in Sth Dakota
Yosemite in California
Will leave you in awe
Australia, always wanted to go there

Stood in the spray of Niagara Falls
Rafted and hiked the Grand Canyon
Where natural wonders abound
Australia, always wanted to go there

Graceland a monument to the King
Lincoln Memorial for Honest Abe
History old and new
Australia, always wanted to go there

Eaten Cajun in the south
San Francisco's Sourdough
America is full of delights
Australia, always wanted to go there

Alcatraz and the White House
Crooks have lived there
America is so diverse
Australia, always wanted to go there

The mighty Mississippi
So powerful and majestic
Many tales she has created
Australia, always wanted to go there

But I want to see a kangaroo
One of those koala bears
Clean beaches and sunshine
Australia, always wanted to go there
