Verse 1

Everyone enjoys the freedom we have living in our land,

And we’re grateful to all those who had to fight;

Making sure our lives were better than they were in times gone by,

For they won for us our democratic rights!


Democracy is the government

Of the people, by the people, for the people.

Use your voice, use your voice, use your voice.
