'Hope is like a rope to the future'

'Hope is like a rope to the future'

(Mackillop College and Bourke High School)
Hope is like a rope
To the future, yeah!
Despair come close
And I'll boot ya, uh!

(Bellingen High School and Dorrigo High School)
We're from Dorrigo
check out our song
spuds make you strong
And goon makes you gone

We're from Bellingen
But you can call it 'Bello'
Listening to music
Keeps us all mellow!

Urunga, Valla, Northy
Are really really cool
Except they're populated
by old people

We're young
Get our energy from the sun
We surf, party
Do our school work
And have fun

We're full of culture
Love family and friends
Surf, rap and dance
This is the message we send

(Oberon High School)
Home is where the heart is
Cause we like having fun
living in a small town
Cause you know everyone

O Town Oberon
That's where we're from
And when it snows
Oh yeah! That's the bomb

Friend and dreams
Keep us strong
Believe in yourself
And you can't go wrong

We love country life
Cause it's laid back, now
Dance to the music
Check out this track

(Bellingen High School and Dorrigo High School)
We're full of culture
Love family and friends

This is the message we send

(Inverell High School)
Sitting in my room
Alone on my bed
Afraid of all the
Bad things that were said

Confused about the things
Going on in my head
But that's about to end

Turn to my pet dog
And gave him a pat
Time to get all this stress
Off my back

Gonna make a feed
Put on a CD
Ring my friends
And have a party

(Mackillop College and Bourke High School)
Let's get focused
On the future
Do somethin right
That will suit ya

Be true to yourself
Find your freedom
Remember to look out
For number one

Keep ya head up
Go walkabout
Think about it
Freedom is your
Own peace

Sometimes ya just need
To release
So keep away
From those police

(Bellingen High School and Dorrigo High School)
We're full of culture
