about

In title and introduction this song it is a parody of the white Australian people's idea of a celebration to annually drink and party on the day that the European invaders came and stole indigenous land. This song is a condemnation of the racist holidays and disrespect to the owners of this land.

lyrics

I'm dreamin' of a white Australia Day.
It's gonna be great this year.
So swing by the barbie and grab a beer
And make sure to keep blackfellas away.
This land was and it still is and always will be Aboriginal land
But let's celebrate the slaughter of their ancestors and tell them that it's part of the plan.

Don't tell me you got problems. I don't just want attention.
God forbid someone will get offended by you dancing on their graves.

You mourn the deaths of the whites but you drink to the death of the rest.
This country has a rich, full history but you don't wanna hear about that.
Ignorance works in your favour
When the rich, white man controls the media.

This country is not 200 years old. It wasn't founded by Captain Cooke.
Try looking further than the biased history books.

You mourn the deaths of the whites but you drink to the death of the rest.
This country has a rich, full history but you don't wanna hear about that.
Ignorance works in your favour
When the rich, white man controls the media.
