'Money, culture, power, politics'

(Geraldton Grammar School)
Money, culture, power, politics
Money, culture, power, politics
All these things affect
The way I live
Let me give an example
Let us give an example

The iron ore comes from Tallering Peak
My family farm wheat and sheep
We export crayfish that the Japanese eat

Different songs create our culture
We mix rap, rock and country to make
Our own sculpture

Sonic power, wind power
Electric power, people power

Little Johnny Howard rushing into war
Now our troops are dead
What did we do this for?

Money, culture, power, politics
Money, culture, power, politics

(Quinns Beach Primary School & Bluff Point School)
Strength to control your anger
Gives you power
If you always lose your temper
Your friendships will be sour

And then you'll get locked up
In a tower without any power
Bored
Cause you're stuck
There for hours

How's your attitude
Show some respect
Don't you ever reflect
Check yourself in the mirror

Stay strong in your culture
Yes we're getting nearer
To where we need to be
Unity!

(Walkaway Primary School)
You can make money
Working on an oil rig
You can make a dollar
Farming deers and pigs
You can make a crust
Harvesting wheat in the dust or
You can make a living driving trucks

Transporting sheep, horse or cattle
It can be a battle
But stay in the saddle
Riding onto our future
We never walk away
Never walk away
We're from Walkaway
We're from Walkaway

(Katanning Senior High School)
We go to Katanning High School
But we'd rather be
Hunting and gathering
Bush food
Kangaroos, I speared one in
The throat
Then I saw a goat and
I asked my number two
What should I do?
He said, 'Go back to Katanning High School'
Where Aunty Maxine lays down the rules
Cultural
Not like them fools
Bush and Howard
Fighting for more power
They're nothing but cowards
Fools
