Every Little Bit of Australia

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Australia Is His Name (1985).

Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
We got the kindies and beginners at the primary school,
Where the kiddies learn to read and write,
We got the colleges and Universities for the ones that seem so bright,
We got the technical trade school,
Apprentices, for those who like to use their hands,
Then all the rest left over get to sing in a rock 'n' roll bands.
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
We got the footie on a Saturday afternoon,
Where everybody rants and raves,
We've got the big American super marts,
Where the house husbands shop and save
We got clubs and Tatisalls, TAB where we try to win a quid,
But the telly and the all night radio, one of the best thing we ever did.
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
We got the Swan and the Torrens and the Brisbane too
All the rivers run through the town,
We've Sydney Harbour, the Murray and the Yarra,
Where the water is thick and brown,
We got the Snowy and the Ord and Pine Gap,
That was put there for our sake,
But to bundle politicians in Canberra,
Was the smartest move to make.
Now the Aboriginal people have been here since dreaming time,
With the birds and animals all their own
It's a land as old as time,
We've got cities and towns, and migrant friends,
A great Australian dream,
So take all ya papers and tins and things
And keep Australia clean.
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Yeah, yeah, every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me,
Every little bit of Australia is a little bit of you and me.
