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!
There are many ways to govern every country must decide,
In Australia, by democracy, we’re ruled;
So the major vote determines those elected and who might
Represent the people’s vision and their views.
Democracy is the government
Of the people, by the people, for the people.
Use your voice, use your voice, use your voice.
