Our Survival Day by Raylene Campion

Another Australia Day has arrived
Celebrations across our land
Guess they don’t think what we’ve been through
Our ancestors tried to hold our land
Keep us together to protect our clans
Barbecues burning and sweet tasting wine
The white man’s celebrating what belongs to us
But we’re here in the background
Being proud of who we are
Our red, black and yellow unites us all
Saying we have survived another century
Of white man’s invasion.
