Advance

Traditional keepers of the land
Not welcome in country;
Your ancestors protecting hand
From dawn of history
The landscape tells the dreaming tales
The story is found there;
On history’s page, the white man writes
It’s my Australia fair!
You lost your culture and your lands
Was all done fair and square!

to the tune of the Australian National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair
