'The Aussie Barbecue Song' does what Australians tend to do best – poke fun at ourselves.

Legendary comic performer Frankie Davidson refers to the Australian barbecue as a 'national institution' while highlighting the craziness of what we endure for the sake of it – flies in the margarine, burnt steaks and sausages, fighting kids, bull ants and barking dogs. 

The song also alludes to the Australian sense of mateship, with the notion that we're all in it together so let's make the most of it – 'c'mon mate, let's grab a plate and have a barbecue'.
