Paul Keating:
There's a tale I heard
Of an island man
Tough and undeterred, he said "Haven't you heard?
This land - our land! "

"We belong"
That's what the High Court said
So when you sing this song, you gotta sing it for Ed.
For Eddie.
Ready?

Keating:
Speak the truth and make it so!

And if we follow this philosophy
Demand a land beyond compare
Then girt by faith and generosity
We'll all combine to redefine a beauty rich and rare
In joyful strains then let us sing...

All:
Advance Australia...
