Sorry Day in Canberra 13th Feb 2008

Sorry ©words and music by Doug payne 2008.

Our leaders say there is no doubt.

We must apologise.

Others can not spit it out.

They choke on their lies.

Remember what your scripture teacher taught ya.

He didnt speak the truth about the slaughter.

Remeber when they took young Jill away.

She's waiting still to hear those words today.

A friend of mine says, why do you worry?

I feel for her, oh so very sorry.

Our leader says we have no choice.

We must apologise.

the other fella lost his voice.

choking on those lies.

Remember when our neighbour's baby died

I can't believe how long the mother cried.

I do not even know this white girls name

and I hope I never know her kind of pain.

A friend of mine says, why do you worry?

I feel for her, oh so very sorry.©
