Australia's First People

They have lived in Australia for thousands of years
And the arrival of the uninvited only brought them suffering death and tears
They have been sinned against Australia's first race
And the way they have been treated is a human disgrace
They deserve to be honored in story and rhyme
The descendants of the people of the dreaming time
On saying they deserve to be treated far better the truth one must face
And in Australia they should command the highest place
Australia's first people have a proud history
For so long the caretakers of the southern Country
Indigenous to Australia the vast southern Land
Their great love of Country not hard to understand
Through decades of time they have been treated horribly
But as Australia's first people they always will be.
