'Towards the future'

(Thursday Island State School and Warraber Island State School)
We dancing
We weaving
We speaking creole
We learning culture
We keep it strong
We holding on
To our past
As we move towards the future

(Western Cape College)
We're the boys from Western Cape College
We're the girls from Western Cape too
Motorcross, pig hunting, dancing
Some of the things we do

(Injinoo Youth Group)
We the Injinoo rappers
Top End turtle catchers
U gud kai kai (food)
No I no gud
U me go hunting
Even though it's hot

Let's go cool ourselves
In the fresh saltwater

We dive for crayfish
Nice to eat with damper
We like the youth centre
To draw on paper
We like to play pool
Cos you sabe
Cos you sabe
e cool

(Western Cape College)
We're Western Cape year 9
Where the weather's fine
All the time
Hanging round the bauxite mine
Check our rhyme

We roam the streets
With our peeps
Stayin cool in the heat now
What's to eat
Pig meat and fish
Barramundi is my favourite dish
Have you ever tasted this
Way of life

Swimming down at six tunnels
Aint got no strife
Humidity so thick
You could cut it with a knife

(Thursday Island State School and Warraber Island State School)
We're from the Island where
The five seas meet
When we go hunting
We look for dhangal meat
Arafura, Indian, Pacific sea
Timor, Coral it's the place to be

Mepla play touch and volleyball
AFL, NRL and basketball
We go dinghy ride and fishing too
Thursday, Warraber
In oceans blue

We dancing
We weaving
We speaking creole
We learning culture
We keep it strong
We holding on
To our past
As we move towards the future
