Song Lyrics

`Bang!` goes another kanga

On the bonnet of the van.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

Many an Aborigine`s mistaken for a tree

`Til you near him on the motorway

And the tree begin to breathe.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

("Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha")

Coming in with the golden light

In the morning.

Coming in with the golden light

Is the New Man.

Coming in with the golden light

Is my dented van.

Woomera.

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-

A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-

Me-me-me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-"

Woomera.

"A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-

Me-me-me-me-me.

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-

A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-"

The civilised keep alive

The territorial war.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

Erase the race that claim the place

And say we dig for ore,

Or dangle devils in a bottle

And push them from the Pull of the Bush.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

You find them in the raw.

"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."

In the raw.

Coming in with the golden light

In the morning.

Coming in with the golden light

With no warning.

Coming in with the golden light

We bring in the rigging.

Dig, dig, dig, dig away.

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-

A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-

Me-me-me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-"

Woomera.

"A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-

Me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-

A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-"

Woomera.

"Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-

Me-me-me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-

A-a-a-a-a-

M-m-m-m-m-

Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

I-i-i-i-i-"

Woomera.

"Me-me-me-me-me."

Ma-ma-many an Aborigine`s mistaken for a tree

("La, la, oo-ooh!")

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

You near him on the motorway

And the tree begin to breathe.

Erase the race that claim the place

And say we dig for ore.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

Dangle devils in a bottle

And push them from the Pull of the Bush.

"See the sun set in the hand of the man."

"Bang!" goes another kanga

On the bonnet of the van.

"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."

You find them in the raw.

"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

In the raw.

"See the light."

("Push `em from the")

Pull of the Bush.

"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."

("Push `em from the")

Pull of the Bush.

"See the sun set in the hand of the man."

("Oh, re mikayina!")
