The Aussie Spirit by lightsmith

Australians call out with one voice,
To all across the sea,
We value race and culture and
Rule with democracy.

Black or white, we’ll stand as one,
So to the world we’ll swear,
To tolerate our Aussie mate,
Advance Australia fair!

In human lives we shall not trade,
Nor human rights neglect,
We’re all a part of this one world,
This globe we must protect,

With terrorists we shall not deal,
Nor give in to despair,
Our calls for peace, will never cease,
Advance Australia fair!

We’ve Muslims, Jews and Christians too,
Where all may choose their path,
Where elderly may walk the streets,
And little children laugh,

Where spirits rise and friendships grow,
Where people ever care,
Where hate and fear are nowhere near,
Advance Australia fair!

In joyful strains then let us sing,
“Advance Australia fair!”

(One of the Geelong Bollards)
