It doesn't matter what your colour 
 As long as you a real fella 
As long as you a true fella All the people of different races With different lives in different places It doesn't matter what your name is We got to have lots of changes We need more brothers if we're to make it We need more sisters if we're to save it ~ George Rrurrambu Burarrwanga & Neil Murray
