Wattle Day Song
We're proud to wear the Green and Gold,
Live the Spirit of Australia,
We welcome Spring on Wattle Day,
From coast to coast, let's all say G'Day.
The wattle lies dormant through winter months,
Building her strength for the Spring to come,
When life bursts forth in golden sprays,
Let's get together 'round Australia and say....
At the drop of a hat we'll celebrate,
Go out in the bush with our BBQ plate,
If someone's in need, we'll help them out,
Let's get together 'round Australia and shout....
The wattle shows a way we can live our lives,
An expression of hope, through fire and flood it thrives,
By working together we can beat the odds,
Aussie friendship and courage what more could we want....
