We will honour our elders Till the chains of time rust cos' they shared their legacy From the oceans to the dusts It's not written on the pages of Wills. Or even on the Net, It's just as they left it The same when they went No signage is written In words with a meaning By words from their mouths Grew generations of Dreaming; Animals and plants, They mirrored the soul; The stories had teachings, For each waterhole; Time has watched fete change, And the stars, they still shine; Elders showed us the legacy, Of environment sublime; We will honour our elders, Till the dawn meets the dusk They entrusted this legacy From the oceans to the dusts
