Company B – Ma(m)bo lyrics

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?

Band:
Ready!
Mabo!
Mabo!
Mabo!

Keating:
What's that name?

Band:
Mabo!

Keating:
For the Meriam people

Band:
Mabo!

Keating:
It was very unequal

Band:
Mabo!

Keating:
Was it totally legal? Oh no!
Watch me now!

[Saxophone solo]

Band:
Mabo!
Mabo!
Mabo!

Keating:
Here comes another one!

Band:
Mabo!

Keating:
Native title

Band:
Mabo!

Keating:
It's alive and vital

Band:
Mabo!

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...
