The third and final interactive telephonic cut-up by Inkahoots offers Banjo Patterson for renovation. After rewriting the official national anthem and Dorothea Mackellar’s poem My Country, pedestrians can now have a fiddle with the ‘other’ national anthem, Waltzing Matilda:
“And he _______ as he sat and _______ by the billabong”.
