lyrics

Don’t sing me an Anthem
‘Cause you don’t know the words
Words are hard to remember
When they mean nothing at all
To the hordes who’re still waiting
For their voice to be heard
Don’t sing me your Anthem
When your Anthem’s absurd

We might have been born here
But we’re not young and free
We weren’t born yesterday
And only liberal by degree
This land may be beautiful
But it cannot be called fair
Don’t sing me an Anthem
Until we’ve learned how to share

We are the ‘lucky country’
Where anyone can win
If you were born to the right family
And have the white coloured skin
So don’t sing me my Anthem
‘Cause the words can’t be felt
What’s pride in a country
Without pride in yourself?

Don’t sing me an Anthem
‘Cause you don’t know the words
Words are hard to remember
When they mean nothing at all
To the hordes who’re still waiting
For their voice to be heard
Don’t sing me your Anthem
When your Anthem’s absurd
