Stranger In My Country

Stranger in my country
Stranger in my land
Today to somewhere, no account
Tomorrow, something grand

I doubt if you'd agree with me
Or if you'd understand
Until that day for guys like me
I'm a stranger in my land

Forgive me if it seems as though
But I am not mistaken
Cos Im the one who you forgot
After my land was taken

In early years we were put down
Cast aside as vermin
Women, men and kids shot down
Then tamed by a bible sermon


They say that black is beautiful
I learned it far and wide man
Are you sincere in what you say?
If not please step aside then

This land is like a store-bought pie
And lots of people come
All to get themselves a slice
And I can't get a crumb


Don't try to understand me now
Ive seen the sights that pain ya
Has it really changed for me
Since round up in Tasmania?

Black Australia has his pride
And his culture and his Dreamtime
Is he to lose all this as well
I wonder in the meantime…..
