The Australian Flag
In honor of those who fought beside us in Vietnam!

OUR FLAG

NO IMPERIAL DREAM

Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night

In our southern sky of blue

And that little old flag in the corner

That's part of our heritage too,

It's for the English, the Scots and the Irish

Who were sent to the end of the earth

The rogues and the schemers and dreamers

Who gave our Australia its birth.



And you who are shouting to change it

You don't seem to understand

It' the flag of laws and language

Not the flag of a far away land

There are plenty of people who'll tell you

How when Europe was plunged into night

The little old flag in the corner

Was the symbol of freedom and light



It don't mean we owe our allegiance

To a forgotten imperial dream

We've the stars to show where we're going

And the old flag to show where we've been

It's only an old piece of bunting

It's only and old coloured rag

But there are thousands who died for its honour

And fell in the defence of our flag
