Missy Higgins track "Everyone's Waiting" seemed very appropriate for a song about Australia's spot on the London medal tally last week.
We went more than a week without a gold medal while the silver came flooding in so Fitzy and Wippa thought it was time to write a song to the tune of Missy Higgins' new single "Everyone's Waiting".
The shackles have since been broken with a gold onslaught in the sailing, along with Anna Meares in the cycling and Sally Pearson in the 100m hurdles.
Four years and the team’s on their way Expectation’s the word of the day The girls kicked it off with a gold in the winning relay
Then it was time for the boys Excitement, a nation was poised Success inevitable It was time to raise The medal tally
But everyone’s waiting We misfired the missile and now it is silver that we’re displayingAnd everyone’s waiting
We’ve had gastro and plenty of stress One rowers been placed under arrest Have our bikes got a flatty or our rowers are they missing an oar?
We need someone to blame A finger to point Cos everyone’s winning Except for us, we’re getting smashed by the Kiwis and bloody Great Britain Turn it off, I just want to the telly off
And Australia is waiting It’s ironic the hurdles we faced gave us gold from Sally Pearson Now Rio is waiting
