Testo Ruler Of The Land

Testo Ruler Of The Land

PAUL KEATING:
I thought this moment would be nervous
But tonight I'm full of joy
I bless my twenty years of service
As a Blaxland Bankstown boy
A chance to make the nation richer
An opportunity to see
A wider screen, a bigger picture
And you gave that chance to me -
I take it with glee!

'Cos I am the ruler of the land
They tell me I'm the man

BAND:
Who da man?

KEATING:
Who da man?

BAND:
You da man!
KEATING:
Yes I am.
But... but... but...

I am the ruler of a nation torn
By redneck scorn of the native born
Can we finally have a treaty please?
Apologies to Aborigines?

Nowadays I'm quite persuaded
A nation takes its share of blame
The white man certainly invaded
The past will always stay the same
Show me something of our future
Smarter, wiser, less afraid
Put the mozz on every moocher
Let the nation be remade - I must be obeyed!

'Cos I am the ruler of the land
They tell me I'm the man

BAND:
Who da man?

KEATING:
Who da man?

BAND:
You da man!

KEATING:
Yes I am.
But... but... but...

I am the servant of a distant queen
Who can overween and intervene
Can we finally make her obsolete?
Stand complete on our own two feet?

And wouldn't it be nice to get on with your neighbour?
And make it very clear, Australia part of Asia?
And wouldn't it be good just hangin' in the hood
To lend a cup of sugar like a neighbour should?
And wouldn't it be sweet talkin' over the fence,
Recalcitrance becoming common sense?

Let me now address the chamber
Everyone from red to blue
(I'm talkin' to you!)
Yes, I'm at the end of the rainba
And now I hold a pot of gold for you
Here's the gist of my agenda:
Let's advance Australia fair

BAND:
Advance Australia fair!

KEATING:
No retreat and no surrender
'Till we get our nation there - I solemnly swear!

'Cos I am the ruler of the land
They tell me I'm the man

BAND:
Who da man?

KEATING:
Who da man?

BAND:
You da man!

KEATING:
Yes I am.

BAND:
Top banana republic man
Top banana republic man

KEATING:
Yes I am

BAND:
Top banana republic man

KEATING:
I am the ruler of the land

BAND:
Top banana republic man

KEATING:
Yes, yes I am

BAND:
Top banana republic man

KEATING:
I am the ruler of the land

BAND:
Top banana republic man

KEATING:
And they tell me I'm the man

BAND:
Who da man?

KEATING:
Who da man?

BAND:
You da man!

KEATING:
I am!
