Wiradjuri Chorus 1 Wiradjuri Wiradjuri Verse 1 There was mist upon the water White ancestors had come beyond the trees It's no lie they rode across the water On beasts as big as day Chorus 2 We yelled "We're Wiradjuri" We yelled "What do you want?" Don't you understand at all? Verse 2 Well, well The ghosts now walk amongst us don't you know They bring lightening sticks to send us to our dreams Baime never told us of this mob The Jiri Jiri fret to see us bleed Verse 3 The ancient ones that painted all our dreams Never told us of the troubles you would bring Now we drift into a nightmare not a dream And we yell, "We're Wiradjuri"
