River Chat

Part 1
Riv­er, riv­er where do you flow
with your water the colour of tea,
Gold­en red in your sandy bed,
do you flow to the wide, green sea?

Part 2
No, said the riv­er, I flow in land,
Sink down deep among the rocks and the sand,
Under the gidgee and the mul­ga tree,
Where the desert peo­ple can drink me.

Part 3
Earth belongs to all she belongs to no one,
she belongs to her self.
Earth belongs to all she belongs to no one,
she belongs to her self.
