'This is where we stand'

(Saibai Island State School)
School song: 'Saibai my island Home'

(Yorke Island State School)
Mepla from Yorke Island State School
Diving for crayfish helps me stay cool
We weave baskets, mats, birds and hats
When the sun sets look up in the sky
There go the bats

Turtle, pig, dugong
Cook 'em up in a cup murri
Eat them up, cause they taste
So yummy in my tummy

Island dancing, boys dance Zugub
Girls dance Upur
The name of a type of fruit bat
Is Sapur

(Western Cape College)
In the wet season the rain comes down
In the dry season everything goes brown
When the swamps flood the croc comes to town
Only the golf course is green
That's where the pigs hang around

Everything is green
And all the geese go into the swamp to hide
Feel the temperature rise
The grass dries
The snakes are about
And there are too many flies
Too many flies

Ngui Saibai gul
Ngui Ngunpaipa toedipa
Ngui Saibai gul
Ngui Ngunpaipa toedipa
Ngui mulpa girrel odunu
Ngui mulpa girrel odunu

(Western Cape College)
Cape York Weipa in Queensland
This is where we stand
On the dry, hot dusty sand
This is our land and the plants are all dried up
Driving through in our ute where the roads are rough

The creek is shallow
The sun is really yellow
We're sitting by the fire
Roasting a marshmallow
We're breathing humid air
And we want to wet our hair

Our lips are cracked
From the heat
Listen to our rap
Over this beat
