LYRICS

12. Dreamland (Danny Hooper)

    This song was originally penned and recorded as ‘Give it all,’’ a song written for     the Sydney 2000 Olympics.  I fought hard to try and have it included in the line-up     of songs for the Games but to no avail.

    It was such a good-feel song that I couldn’t let it go so I re-wrote it to be about our     beautiful great country.  It’s a song which seems to make its listeners feel proud to     be Australian.

The Great Red Rock is beating, the heart of this great land
Spirit flows through every vein to reach the coastal sand
From tropics to the desert there’s a feast of paradise
Dreams are made a-many when together we unite

This is a Dreamland so wide and free
Such beauty from the red rock to the sea
A land of hope where hearts run free
This is Australia.

From the rugged Kimberleys to the Snowy Mountain range
History leaves the footprints of our Ancestral days
A nation built with courage, they’ve toiled to shine the light
A future paved of freedom, of hope and dreams alike

This is a Dreamland so wide and free
Such beauty from the red rock to the sea
A land of hope where hearts run free
This is Australia.

Our wealth is in the people, the key to where they stand
With hearts as big as Uluru, they’ll lend a helping hand
An all-infectious smile, a common Aussie trait
With open arms they’ll welcome you, a simple “G’day Mate”

This is a Dreamland so wide and free
Such beauty from the red rock to the sea
A land of hope where hearts run free
This is Australia
