Aussies love their meat pies and the Australian maggies have a fabulous and elaborate song. I couldn’t help but mix the two.
Sing a song of six pence,
a pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds
baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
the birds began to sing.
Wasn’t that a dainty dish
to set before the king?
