SAMPLE LYRICS (LISTEN to song sample ~ Track 1) NB:
The lyric sample below is from the international version of the song; the audio sample is from the Australian version - the generic version 'In our school, we have values...', is included in the MP3 & MP4 downloadable song package versions ~ refer to live links above...)
In our school, we have values
That show how much we care,
About giving all a fair go,
In this great land that we share.
Caring for ourselves and others,
Always aiming to do our best.
We’re treating everybody fairly,
With understanding and respect.
Building character is our destiny,
We are working for the good of all;
With sincerity and honesty,
We’re moving forward, walking tall.
