Surrounded as in we are an island.

Blowed if I know. I'm still trying to work out how we all got Ostriches.

(Its actually a contraction of "girdled" an old word for surrounded.)

But I'd sooner have "I am Australian " as the anthem. Much more apropriate in my book.

"Our land's in the middle of the sea"



I just googled it.
