Colours Of Australia

I spy with my little eye
Blue and grey and green.
Open, blinking,
Wide and winking,
The loveliest eyes I’ve ever seen.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

I spy with my little eye
Blonde and black and red.
Straight and long,
Curly and strong,
Different hair on different heads.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

I spy with my little eye
Peach and tan and brown.
Cheeks and noses,
Fingers and toes,
Beautiful skin is all around.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

We’re lucky to live in a colourful world,
With friendly boys and friendly girls,
We all look different but on the inside,
We have the same heart and we wear it with pride!

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

So let’s hold hands and show we care.

So let’s hold hands and show we care.
