I don't think that song is right.

Not really. Down under is more-or-less my land for the time being.

I don't actually own any property.

It's an interesting observation about the song, since the song was written as part of a movement that was about giving some rights and power to some rather powerless people, wasn't it?

Ah yes, so it was: This Land Is As Much Our Land As Their Land might have been a safer title. Or This Land Isn't Their Land, They Just Act Like It Is possibly. Or something a little less based on delusional hegemonic megalomania.

Maybe Woody Guthrie was a better lyricist than you.
