BLACKFELLA WHITEFELLA
(N.Murray & G.Rrurrambu)

Blackfella, whitefella
It doesn't matter what your colour
As long as you a true fella
As long as you a real fella
All the people of different races
With different lives in different places
It doesn't matter what your name is
We got to have lots of changes
We need more brothers if we're to make it
We need more sisters if we're to save it

Are you the one who's gonna stand up and be counted?
Are you the one who's gonna be there when we shout it?
Are you the one who's always ready with a helping hand?
Are you the one who understands this family plan?

Blackfella, whitefella, yellafella, anyfella
It doesn't matter what your colour
As long as you a true fella
All the people of different races
With different lives in different places
It doesn't matter which religion
It's all the same when the ship is sinking
We need more brothers if we're to make it
We need more sisters if we're to save it

Are you the one who's gonna stand up and be counted?
Are you the one who's gonna be there when we shout it?
Are you the one who's always ready with a helping hand?
Are you the one who understands this family plan?

Stand up, stand up and be counted
Stand up, stand up and be counted
Stand up, stand up and be counted
Are you the one who's going to stand up and be counted
Stand up, stand up and be counted
Stand up, stand up and be counted
Are you the one who's always ready with a helping hand?
Are you the one who understands this family plan?
