Yothu Yindi – Mabo lyrics

Terra nullius terra nullius
Terra nullius is dead and gone

We were right
That we were here
They were wrong
That we weren't here

Liya balburrk bapayili
Liya waltjan bapayili
Liya balburrk bapayili
Liya waltjan bapayili

Mirriam people are dancing
Pastime heoes are dancing too
Mabo's spirit is sailing
Telling the world a story

Terra nullius terra nullius
Terra nullius is dead and gone
Liya balburrk bapayili
Liya waltjan bapayili...

We were right
That we were here
They were wrong
That we weren't here...
Mabo's law is standing firm
Shedding power
For us to be strong
Spirit, law, culture and all
Showing the world
See our law

Terra nullius terra nullius
Terra nullius is dead and gone

We were right
That we were here
They were wrong
That we weren't here

Liya balburrk bapayili
Liya waltjan bapayili
Bapayili bapayili
Bapayili bapayili
