(To be sung to the tune of Advance Australia Fair)

Australia’s water must be saved
we need each precious drop
we’ve wasted water long enough
and now it’s gotta stop.
Our land grows browner every day
the dams are dry, we’re told
this generation has the means
for change, we must be bold.

So loud and strong now let us sing
for change, we must be bold

The climate change is caused by man
land management is poor
our rivers choke and wildlife dies
can’t do it anymore.
A dry tsunami threatens us
not fiction, it’s a fact
before the landscape chokes with salt
our government must act.

So loud and strong now let us sing
our government must act.

Don’t leave it to the pollies
to Kyoto and the Yanks
we must act now to make things right
please join us in the ranks.
Sustain, conserve, de-salinate
give life back to our lands
c’mon now, all you Aussie mates
the future’s in our hands.

So loud and strong now let us sing
the future’s in our hands!
