>Hi Bob Lewis:
>
>Edge's requirements for adding Black Swan to COMAL are too tough, so I'm
>helping out by pasting the words to Waltzing Matilda below to get you
>started. Now all you have to do is learn the Kookaburra song and sheer the
>sheep before the requisite audience of 100,. and you've got another COMAL
>species.
>
>Incidentally, a Kookaburra is a kind of kingfisher, although it eats more
>snakes, lizzards and insects than it does fish. A "jumbuck" is what a bloke
>calls a sheep. A billabong is something like an oxbow lake.
