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?
