about

Blackbreaks don’t want to just change the date of Australia Day. They want to destroy any celebration of British Invasion Day, and the racist stain that underpins it. They also like dressing up like the first fleet and running around kiddies playgrounds.

Terra Nullius, the declaration of 'land occupied by no-one', meant that the Indigenous Australians were considered not real people at the time of British arrival. This means the establishment of the Australian colony was from the outset based on a lie, a point legally confirmed more recently by the Australian High Court decision known as Mabo.

But lies are of course acceptable if spoken truly in the Kings perfect English. That is, King George the Third. Three cheers to him, OiOiOi!

lyrics

- LYRICS -

Put your hands in the air for Mother England!
Three cheers for Mother, Mother England!
Hoorah! Hoorah! En-gah-land!
We brought our Union Jack!
Rom-pom-pom-pom-pom pom-pom

We see nothing but ‘backward savages’
For they have never heard
Of our utmost superiority
Of our guns and our George the Third
So we dreamed up our legal fiction
Spoken in our perfect diction
While they looked on in disdain
We stood proudly to proclaim

Terra! Terra Nullius!
Terra Nullius proclaimed!
Sweet Britannia rules the waves!
We’re gonna dream these blacks away-oh

We don’t care about your languages, your culture or your art,
We only care for Mother England, and the whiteness of our hearts.
So we keep our drummer boys marching in
With a rom-pom-pom-pom-pom pom-pom
Bringing ignorance and arrogance and our European Song

We don’t understand your flora, your fauna or your fire
You walk naked with impunity, yet you fight off our desire,
So we made up our legal fiction, announced in our perfect diction
While you looked on in disdain, we stood proudly to proclaim,

Terra! Terra Nullius!
We were born to rule this way!
Sweet Britannia rules the waves!
We’re gonna dream these blacks away-oh
Terra! Terra Nullius,
Terra Nullius proclaimed,
Sweet Britannia rules the waves
We’re gonna dream these blacks away-oh
We’re gonna dream these blacks away-oh..
