lyrics

You gotta wonder what they think of us,
Across the oceans when they see the fuss,
From a boat of desperate people,
Public outrage puts them in a cage.

I know a place where people came on boats,
Unauthorised and largely unopposed,
They took it all from the people here first,
But now they fail to see the irony.

Still they changed the national anthem to just whistling,
Dog whistling, dog whistling, dog whistling.

You gotta wonder what they think of us,
Three to a square kilometre,
Our boundless plains everywhere,
But not enough for us to share.

I know a place where people had a vote,
It changed policy made by xenophobes,
And the place thrived with the cultures coming in,
But now they say were full,
They're full of it.

And now they want a national anthem that's just whistling,
Dog whistling.

We are not full, we are not full, we are not full, we are not full,
We are not full, we are not full, we are not full, we are not full.
