Tribal Birth

You came to our land and took it

Devastation to our people you knew it

You thought that by putting us away

We should be here to obey

Your every command and demand

You had the right to disband

You didn’t once try to see

That we are a special race put here

By our almighty one and Mother Earth

Who gave each of us our tribal birth

Aboriginal Australia has a myth of its own

Our Land Our Culture Our Mother Home

Let us once more be in peace

Do not let this discrimination increase

Each one of us put on this earth

All have Our Rights Our Land Our Tribal Birth.
