LYRICS

VERSE 1
Kowie land the place of many waters
Culture strong cause our elders taught us
Blessed on the land by the elders
Strong spirit strong culture all around us
All three tribes working together
Keeping it real like it’s no big deal
Go to car crossing we love hunting
Feed our family that’s the main thing
Too much drinking too much punching
Makes me sad and got me thinking
This sly grog hurting us kids
Keep it out, think about what you did
Corella calling early in the morning
Laying in your bed don’t be boring
Come to school make my mind grow
Chill with friend go with the flow

PRE CHORUS
No sly grog in our home
Only want peace leave it alone No sly grog and that’s that Kowanyama dat-to-dat

No sly grog in our home
Only want peace leave it alone No sly grog and that’s that
If you like this flow let me hear you clap-clap

CHORUS
Proud of culture, proud of land Blessed on country hand in hand

Proud of culture, proud of land Blessed on country hand in hand

VERSE 2
Country and culture here to make a stand
Proud and deadly this is our land.
Sorry business getting us down
Be there for each other gather round
Grog affects you in a bad way
Be kind to each other watch what you say
Instead take your family out to country
Things will work just wait and see
Pig, turtle, fish, scrub turkey
Duck, flying fox, and wallaby
Kokoberra swamp, sandy creek
Duck holes, three ways, landing, corochee
Kokoberra Kunjen people are so friendly
Kokomenjema people are too deadly
We got everything just come and see
Were proud of this land come walk with me
