Sing Australia (歌唱澳大利亞) - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Written by:John Denver

I come to Australia as many people do

 

To see the old koala

 

Hitch a ride on a kangaroo

 

To hear somebody call me mate

 

And call somebody blue

 

To hear the aborigine

 

Play a didgeridoo

 

Some of you came as prisoners two centuries ago

 

Some of you come as kings and queens your blessing to bestow

 

Some of you stand all swelled with pride

Some with shattered wings

But all of us come with open hearts to hear Australia sing

 

In the desert

In the city

In the mountains and in the sea

 

In the stories and in the people

I can hear Australia sing

 

Waltzing Matilda the men of Galipoli

 

Clancy of the Overflow Crocodile Dundee

The myth of all creation

 

The teaching of the baiame

 

The legends of a dream time

 

For all eternity

 

And in this celebration

 

Of a brief two hundred years

 

The cost to build a nation

 

In blood and sweat and tears

 

And if we stand divided

 

Divided we will fall

 

But if we stand together

 

We shall conquer all

 

In the desert

 

In the city

 

In the mountains

And in the sea

 

In the stories

 

And in the people

I can hear Australia sing

 

Sing Australia

 

Sing Australia

 

Sing Australia

 

Sing Australia

In the sails on Sydney Harbour

 

I can hear Australia sing
