A Flag Of Our Own (我們的旗幟) - John Williams (約翰·威廉斯)

Written by:John Willia

Ned Kelly came round to see me today

 

I guess I was dreaming - oh

 

Dumbfounded I couldn't think what to say

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

I beckoned him in but he shook his head

He said "I'm a bit grubby and a bit poorly bred

 

I'd rather we yarned out the back in the shed

 

I can leave m' boots on that way"

 

Well he took a stiff whisky and laid down his gun

 

He said "I won't keep you long cause I've got to

Run

Got to ride to the mountains before night is done"

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

He said "word's got around 'bout the music you play

 

You truly believe in the fair dinkum way

That the bush must remain for our spirit to stay

 

And we must have a flag of our own "

 

He said "I learned long ago when I was still young

 

Like the lizard that spits and sticks out his tongue

 

Oh the way to get shot is to carry a gun

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

"There's a new world order " the leaders all shout

 

And everyone's frantic they're gonna miss out

 

And the red white and blues are still marching about

Oh we must have a flag of our own"

 

'Cause this is Australia and that's where we're from

 

We're not Yankee side-kicks or second class Poms

 

And tell the Frogs what they can do with their bomb

 

Oh we must have a flag of our own '

 

Cause this is Australia and that's where we're from

 

We're not Yankee side-kicks or second class Poms

 

And tell the Frogs what they can do with their bomb

 

Oh we must have a flag of our own
