Sold! Show me how No, thank you

So proud to see
Before our eyes
The dreams of many
Come to life
A flock of warriors grace the field
As all Australians come to yield
And watch with pride
With flags above
The warriors played a game with love
Now footy is us
A game of greats
Indigenous All Stars
Territories and states
Though history is tough
And life is long
Respect for culture
Is still so strong!
