This Bit of the World Belongs to Us
by Dryblower Murphy
Staunch Secessionists are we one and each and all,
Loyal to our dear adopted land,
'Neath the Single Star
We united are
One in speech and one in heart and hand.
Peopled by the Pioneers who trod the lonely track,
In the glorious days of old,
And where the Pioneers
Toiled within the yester-years,
What we've won we mean to have and hold.
We're following the flag of West Australia, Western AustraliaFederal Politicians came and had their little say,
Trying hard to pull the other leg;
But they wept and wailed,
and like the boy they failed,
Who tried to teach his gran to suck an egg.
As Lincoln in the long ago remarked in Yankee-land,
"You can't fool the people all the time";
But we saw them vamoose
When the 'gropers cooked their goose
So let us sing the good Secession rhyme
We're following the flag of West Australia, Western Australia
