Tim Minchin parodies classic Aussie track as marriage debate rages

How The Housing Crisis Could Help Conservatives Win The Marriage Equality

"The celebrated Australian comedian and musician takes on "I Still Call Australia Home", originally released in 1980 by Peter Allen, in the video he posted on Facebook, adding ".ophobic" to the title.

Tim Minchin has written and performed a parody song about Australia's on-going marriage equality debate, which has been viewed over a quarter of a million times in just a few hours.

'I'm always travelling but wherever I stay, people love Aussies and they generally say, they think we're kind, fun and amusing, tall, tanned and toned. and a little bit racist, and a little bit homophobic, ' the comedian croons.

He goes on to sing about Australians having an worldwide reputation as being "a little bit racist", as well as homophobic.

"It's bad enough these polly arseholes pass discriminatory laws, now we're forced to dance the plebiscite jig".

Après Pepe et Alvaro Negredo, c'est donc un autre international qui débarque sur les bords du Bosphore. Dans cette transaction, l'Inter Milan récupère près de 2,5 millions d'euros en indemnité de transfert.

But on the upside, this plebiscite might enlighten us - at least we'll know exactly how many Aussies are bigoted cunts.

The long-haired comic also warned religious critics of same-sex marriage: 'Your attempt to keep Australia in the past will be a failure, because most of Australia ain't homophobic'.

After the song has ended, Minchin implores Australians to counter the "horrid" plebiscite and "drown the mofos in "yes" votes". "Polls show that Aussies are overwhelmingly in favour of marriage equality".

A heartfelt song to my homeland, recorded last night on my iPhone.
