Sing Australia

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on four albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground Album, and has also been released on the A Portrait, The John Denver Collection - Calypso and The Gift You Are Albums. I come to Australia as many people do To see the old koala, hitch a ride on a kangaroo To hear somebody call me mate and call somebody blue To hear the aboriginee play a didgeridoo Some of you came as prisoners two centuries ago Some of you come as kings and queens your blessing to bestow Some of you stand all swelled with pride, some with shattered wings But all of us come with open hearts to hear Australia sing In the desert, in the city In the mountains and in the sea In the stories and in the people I can hear Australia sing Waltzing Matilda, the men of Galipoli Clancy of the Overflow, Crocodile Dundee The myth of all creation, the teaching of baiame The legends of a dreamtime for all eternity And in this celebration of a brief two hundred years The cost to build a nation in blood and sweat and tears And if we stand divided, divided we will fall But if we stand together we shall conquer all In the desert, in the city In the mountains and in the sea In the stories and in the people I can hear Australia sing Sing Australia, Sing Australia, Sing Australia, Sing Australia In the sails on Sydney Harbour I can hear Australia sing Words and music by John Denver

Hometown Heroes; National Nobodies

ALL TIME LOW "The Party Scene"
They've had chances to make this big city seem so small, Under stage lights, in rooms packed from window to wall, Like the sound of a smile, or the distance of song, only measured in time as the kids sing along. They are the ones who make a difference, get these people on their feet. They say let us be heard... Hear us out... Can you hear the crowd is calling, "Hey, sing louder now," You've got to show them what it means to be alive... Dancing through the night has never been so rock n' roll, You've got a good thing and it's time to let them know. Win their hearts with words unlike the pages left at home, Secrets kept from critics no one ever wants to know... Can you hear the crowd is calling, "Hey, sing louder now," You've got to show them what it means to be alive... Dancing through the night has never been so rock n' roll, You've got a good thing and it's time to let them know. Sing louder now... Lets dance the night away...

Happy Birthday, Leonid Brezhnev

JOAN BAEZ
Happy birthday, Leonid Brezhnev What a lovely seventy-fifth We watched the party on TV You seemed to be taking things casually What a mighty heart must beat in your breast To hold forty-nine medals on your chest Think of all the gifts that you've got Some were acquired and some were not Like a natural talent for marionettes Who do your dirty work and cover your bets So with one hand waving free The other one crushed a budding democracy Congratulations, Jaruzelski What a wonderful job you have done Let me mention to a sane man's eye You've lost the meaning of compromise They're comparing you to General Pinochet It's a dubious compliment at best Your people are freezing, the workers are bleeding You've already arranged numerous deaths The only difference in the camps from the stadiums Is not much for the doomed all cry It's only the weather and the songs people sing Just before they die Do you hear us, Lech Walesa? What a terrible price you have paid For being ahead of your time Has surely constituted a crime Oh, Mr. Brezhnev, look Somebody read the little red book And took it all seriously The way you did when you were young and you believed And you workers and you black Madonna You're not supposed to utter a word But the courage of you and your man of the year Is a symphony the world has seldom seen or heard Through the Siberian gates of hell The Pope and the bishops are wishing you well We see your candles in the park Hear your fearless promises in the dark How they cheat and when tried to win They didn't know that there would always be within you And we hear you, Lech Walesa Yes, we hear you, Lech Walesa Yes, we hear you, Lech Walesa Yes, we hear you, Lech Walesa

If I Stand

JARS OF CLAY
There's more that rises in the morning than the sun And more that shines in the night than just the moon There's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm In a shelter that is larger than this room And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs that I can sing Stuff of Earth competes for the allegiance I owe only to the Giver of all good things So if I stand let me stand on the promise that you will pull me through And if I can't, let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You So if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home And there's more that dances on the prairies than the wind And more that pulses in the ocean than the tide There's a love that's fiercer than the love between friends More gentle than a mother's when her baby's at her side And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs that I can sing The stuff of Earth competes for the allegence I owe only to the Giver of all good things So if I stand let me stand on the promise that You will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home So if I stand let me stand on the promise You will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for home
