Chains do not hold a marriage together.  It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. 

~Simone Signoret

Our families are well respected
We are easily accepted
We have a drink or two
Even make our own home brew
We like to hunt on land
Bare feet on the hot sand
We hunt in the sea
It makes us feel wild and free
We come near and far
All bare feet without a car
We are proud
We sing out loud
We walk hand in hand
We are apart of the great Australian Land
