Hard work and human sacrifice Hard times and struggle true Forging a way of life my friend For the children of the new Climbing the steps of progress Land and riches grew A country built with blood sweat and tears By forbears for me and you They planted the seeds of our land To reap and make the bread They grew the trees on our land To build our homes and our beds They mined the iron in our land For us to make the steel For us to build the ships and the cars So goes the spinning wheel Stripped of all will and skilled no more Folk's fears brushed aside By sole-less greedy directors And myopic Politi' Shifting money and work offshore Protected trade denied The Australian way of life sold out Now in a third world slide Spine-less shifty men at the helm Steering our ship toward the storm With gilded oars and boats they'll flee While we all thrash forlorn
