Very good point (disclaimer, I love Colin Hay and Men At Work), but keep in mind the song is about Aussieland, and the vast majority of Eucalyptus (gum trees) are native to Aussieland, only about 15 out of over 700 types are found outside Aussieland, so maybe he was there simply to highlight another Aussie icon. Of course the flute does imply intent, but only Men At Work know... :) Eucalyptus info from Wiki.

Note that areusche said 'debit'. I've got a debit/credit, which means that it's linked to my account, and I can buy things off the 'net as if it's a credit card, yet I can only spend what's in my account. It's a Westpac Mastercard, with the same numbers as a regualr Mastercard, yet I can't spend more than what's in my account at any given time. Freakin' handy for thinkgeek, ebay... :)

Yeah, she lives in Altona currently, family moved from Wales when she was three (if I remember last night's news program correctly). I drove past her house last night on my way home, the AFP (Aussie Federal Police) car was there, so I guess she was home? Either that or they're protecting her property.
