Get down!

Get down!

(Numbulwarr Community Education Centre and Timber Creek School)
We're the Numbulwar girls
Wear our hair in curls
Long hair, plaits
Sometimes it's dyed yellow
Nunghulbuywuw weeo
Is how we say 'hello'
We like to have disco in the rec hall
Everybody running when they hear the call

Go monear
We speaking Creole here
Mallabut gotte bigmob song here
Sunshine, Yilila, Rolling Tide and Sunset Reggae Band
NT Express across the land
We love to hip hop dance
On the beach in the sand
Because we are the An Ambalaman Band

We be Timber Creek Community
Myatt, Bulla Gulardi
From the land of the Boab tree
Where the Vic River flows to the sea
Hunting for goanna
Fishing for a barramundi or Longneck turtle
Now I'm feeling hungry
Monday to Sunday
This is my country
My people's rock art
Paints a story of me

(Katherine High School)
Friends, parties
Discos and stuff
Freedom to bust around
There's plenty of room
To get down
Get down!

(Wugularr School)
Wugularr, here we are at the Croc Fest
When we dance
we dance the best, yes
Girls dance hip hop
Boys the foot dance
'Axle-F' is the song
Check our deadly stance

We practice ourselves
At Wugularr School
All through lunch
Cause we're so cool
Shiny silver pants
And white T-shirts
Under the light
We're so bright
Your eyes will hurt

(Katherine High School)
There's nothing to do
And it's way too hot
There's so much free
Entertainment
Or not
Small town goss'
Katherine's got a lot
Giving bodgy directions
To tourists so they can get lost
But that's enough
Our town is nuff

(Wugularr School)
East side is the new
Side of town
There are lots of young kids
Running around
Getting chased by the cops
For throwing rocks at houses
It's hard to hide when you're
Wearing bright trousers

Roaming the streets
We ain't got halos on our heads
Maybe we should go home and
Go to bed
But here we are, making noises in
The Park
Trying to catch the cops'
Attention after dark yeah

(Katherine High School)
We got Friends, parties
Discos and stuff
Freedom to bust around
There's plenty of room
To get down
Get down!
