'Hip hop top end'

(Jabiru Area School & Jilkminggan School)
Hip hop, top end, rockin' you
Hip hop, top end, rockin' you

Years 8, 9 and 10 from Jabiru
talking to you
We're strong in our culture
And we're working together
Blackfella, whitefella
Whatever ya colour
From Roper River to Kakadu
We fly like a black cockatoo

Hip hop, top end, rockin' you

Sometimes we're bored
And there's nothing to do
But we all love hunting
For pig and kangaroo
But we all love hunting
For pig and kangaroo

(Borroloola Community Education Centre)
Borroloola is a town on the edge of the savannah
When we go out bush we're hunting goanna
I am a Mungagee Fella

We work hard at school
So we can get real clever, clever

We live down in the Gulf of Carpentaria
There are a lot of big rivers in our area
We go swimming down at McArthur River
In the middle of the night
When it's cold we shiver

(St Joseph's College)
Three hours south of Darwin in the scrub hey
We just got ourselves a Subway
I don't like it
Doesn't taste that good at all
Katherine's a small town
Everyone knows one and all

Hot dry and dusty
All the roads are rocky
When it gets wet
It gets all boggy
There's one cool spot
It's the surf shop
But if u wanna catch a wave
On the Ghan u gotta hop!
Non-stop, we travel for days
From the land of the heat wave
Out here in Katherine
We living our way

K- K- Katherine, we're living our way

(Katherine High School)
We do traditional dance when someone dies
We do disco dance when we feel fine
We're from Katherine High
We dance to the beat
All the time, all the time
All the time, all the time

We love hip hop
And top end rock
Snoop Dog and high tide
Non-stop
Swimming down at the hot springs
Look at what our hunting brings
Sugarbag honey and green plum too
Bush food, it's all good for you
Bush food, it's all good for you

Warlpiri and Myali and Marra we speak
Dancing in the dirt Adidas on our feet
