Lyrics

Australia Remembers (P McGee, J Littrich, N McCann)
1. What if we forgot about the dreams of countless men,
Who gave their hearts, and their lives.
Left their parents, kids and wives,
To fight in wars to help preserve the freedom now enjoyed?
2. What if we forgot about the women left at home,
Who kept the country, towns and farms,
Running with their weary arms,
Who struggled in the worst of times and waited for their men?
Chorus
Australia remembers them, they shall not grow old.
We hope in looking back we learn,
From history’s lesson we discern
A means of bringing peace on earth, Lest we forget.
3. What if we forgot about aggressors at our door,
Who tried to make the world a place,
Where quality depends on race.
Forgot all those atrocities or claimed they never were?
4. And what if we forgot about all those other lives,
Victims of their circumstance,
Who never even stood a chance,
Lives that seem so futile now, unless we stop and think?
Chorus x 2 then repeat the words “Lest we forget”
