'Australia Remembers'
Brenton Manser Copyright  1995 Aust
Based on the poem by Wayne Manser

Chorus
Australia remembers you brave women and men
How could we ever forget? all you did for us
When you defeated the forces of greed and their plans to invade hey hey  hey hey
Australia remembers you and the sacrifice you made.

Verse
From the jungles of Borneo to the Kokoda trail
With right in your hearts you knew you couldn't fail
Not the might of the enemy or the jungle could break
Your will to fight for your country at stake

Verse
You didn't start the conflict, but had to make a stand
When the forces of evil took your neighbour's land
But the free world united, and because you were there
The dreams of a mad man, became his worst nightmare

Chorus
Australia remembers you brave women and men
How could we ever forget? All you did for us
When you defeated the forces of greed and their plans to invade hey hey hey hey
Australia remembers you and the sacrifice you made

Verse
May we all salute you each and every year
For the gift of liberty that we hold dear
And may we thank you for the life we lead
Paid in advance by your selfless deeds

Chorus
Australia remembers you brave women and men
How could we ever forget? All you did for us
When you defeated the forces of greed and their plans to invade hey hey hey hey
Australia remembers you and the sacrifice you made

Verse
The price of victory we know was at cost
And we all share your pain for the comrades you lost
May we humbly assure you they didn't die in vain
For as long as there's freedom we'll live it in their name

Repeat Chorus Twice
